What's Going On - October 2010 Print

A MESSAGE FROM FAMILY CORNER

As many  of you may have noticed, our Shabbat dinners have a new twist!  When possible, we are combining the Shabbat dinners with the Sisterhood Cookbook tasting.  When you bring a dish to these dinners, you have the option to submit that recipe to the cookbook committee.  All you have to do is bring the dish and the recipe to the Shabbat dinner.  That's it!  It's that easy.  We have already had our salad dinner and this month we are going to have our side dish tasting.  Susan Martin and Iris Karas are working on a main course for the meal, all you have to do is bring along your favorite side dish.  We thank you for your efforts and look forward to seeing you on Oct. 1st.

As always, please remember that if you would like to have your child utilize the childcare during services, please make sure to check them in and out.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Meredith Ryan at 960-0698.
            
            Shalom

CORPUS CHRISTI COMMUNITY RELIGIOUS SCHOOL

Our religious school is off to a wonderful start!  We began our first session on Sunday, September 12, 2010, with a meeting in the sanctuary for students, parents, and teachers.  Following introductions and discussion, teachers took their students to classrooms and parents went to the auditorium for registration and coffee.

Teachers for this year’s Sunday sessions are Elisa Cox – Kinder/First, Rikki Schmitchel – Second/Third, Chelsea Eisenberg (Amanda McKinley – Assistant) – Fourth/Fifth, Brian Honigbaum & Dave Ryan – Sixth/Seventh/Eighth and Rabbi Roseman - Confirmation.  Hebrew School teachers are Laurie McKinley, Shiri Tenenbaum Balderan, and Rabbi Roseman.

Consecration will be held prior to Simchat Torah services on Friday, October 1st.  Consecration will begin at 5:30 PM and Shabbat services will begin at 6:00PM followed by our Family Dinner at 7:00pm.  We hope you will share this special occasion with our young people.

We have two camp rallies this month.  Yael Twito from Camp Young Judaea in Wimberley will be here on Sunday, October 10th, and Stefani Rozen from Greene Family Camp will be here on Sunday, October 31st.  Both rallies will begin at 11:15.  Parents are invited to join us.

 TZIPI LIVNI SPEAKS AT CBI ON SUNDAY, OCTOBER 3rd

The satellite connection with the 92nd Street YMHA-YMWA continues as we host Israel’s former foreign minister, Tzipi Livni, on Sunday, October 3 at 7:00 P.M. in our Sanctuary.  Through the miracle of electronic communication, we shall be able to be part of the audience of this live broadcast and to submit questions that may be selected to be posed to and answered by Ms. Livni.

Tzipi Livni is the leader of the opposition Kadima party in Israel’s Knesset.  When that party was in power, she served as foreign minister.  She will speak to the current state of World Jewry and, particularly, to contemporary challenges facing the State of Israel.

There is no charge for this program and everyone is invited.  Please feel free to bring your friends, Jewish or non-Jewish.  A light refreshment will be served following the program.


BRANDEIS WOMEN AND CBI COLLABORATE TO HOST SPEAKER

On Wednesday, October 20 at noon, Dr. Bryan Stone, Associate Professor of History at Del Mar College, will speak to us about his new book, The Chosen Folks: Jews on the Frontiers of Texas.  He will explore how Jews arrived in this state and sought to forge a dual identity, becoming part of the Texas culture and, simultaneously, retaining their Jewish roots and passions.  He will deal with how Jews coped with “the frontier” and its distinctive mentality, the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the emergence of the State of Israel after the destruction of the Holocaust.

 HIGH HOLYDAY FOOD COLLECTION

 It has been traditional to make a donation of food to the Corpus Christi Food Pantry during the High Holydays.  This is to fulfill the Haftarah that we read from Isaiah that said that what God wants, in part, is that we distribute our bread to the poor.
 
If you have not yet contributed, there is still time.  We shall not take our collected food to the pantry until October 11th.  Please fill up a bag or just bring something that is non-perishable and leave it off at CBI.  If you would prefer, you can write a check and we shall see that it is delivered to the CCFB, where they can use it to purchase food of their choice.
