What's Going On - June & July 2017 Print

Religious School 

Religious School has come to an end for the 2016-2017 school year. We have a fantastic group of teachers and we hope that you will let them know what a great job they are doing. Manuela will be your Religious School Director next year. I am sad to leave my post but have truly enjoyed my time with the Religious School. Have a wonderful summer and don’t forget to practice your Hebrew and continue to enhance your religious education at home and at Temple. Look for 2017-2018 registration and Religious School information over the summer. Enjoy your break!

Shalom,
Meredith and Manuela

Family Shabbat Dinner


Shalom Y'All,

Our Mexican-themed Family Shabbat Dinner last month was so much fun bringing in Shabbat together and enjoying our yummy Taco Bar too!  The bountiful desserts topped off our end-of-year dinner, and I want to thank everyone for attending. 

It's hard to believe this completes my 6th year planning and preparing meals for our congregation, and it warms my heart that you love my cooking!  I want to thank everyone who gave their time to help me this season ~~ Linda, Suzy & Rose as well as Sue Williams, Linda Snider, Venita Crow, Odelia & Love Rios.  Thank you ladies for your help and expertise, in and out of the kitchen, to make these Family Shabbat Dinners delicious and successful!

Until we break bread together again, wishing all of you a safe, relaxing, and fun-filled summer!

Family Shabbat Dinner Coordinator


CBI Sisterhood 

Summer is quickly approaching!! A new slate is coming into our Sisterhood! We, Odelia Rios and Manuela Sela, would like to take this time to say Thank You on this wonderful opportunity in taking over the baton from Jerri as the new Sisterhood Co-Presidents for the upcoming year! We would like to thank Jerri for all her hard work and everything she has done for the sisterhood and we are honored to work with you all. 

More information will follow, but below are two scheduled events we are planning already.  Our Annual Sisterhood Kickoff Party will be in August. As the time comes closer we will have more specifics.

Mira Emanuel will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah on June 3rd! We are so proud of her! We will be baking for Mira’s Oneg and we could use some help. It would be greatly appreciated! If you would like to volunteer or bake, please contact Leslie Green or Phillis Roseman.

Enjoy the summer and we will see you all in August!

Thank you,
