Check in here to get the latest word on our major accomplishments, upcoming events, and your opportunities to participate and contribute from our Men's Club President Steven Elisco.
With the High Holidays in full swing, you may be thinking of what you can do to start the year off right. I would suggest participating in two very important Mitzvot that occur on October 6th.
Come and help build the congregational outdoor Sukkah, an annual Men's Club tradition, as well as the indoor Sukkah in the Wintergarden. No special skills are required. After helping with the Sukkahs, consider donating blood at the High Holiday Blood Drive in the Youth Lounge. You can also get your flu shot in the Tree of Life Lobby.
During Sukkot, we will be holding our Steaks in the Sukkah program on Thursday, October 17th. Come for delicious grilled steaks, a great selection of beers and camaraderie. See the flyer posted in the Men's Club section of the CBS website for the event description, registration, and payment information.
Two of our Sunday Morning Special Program Breakfasts will occur this month.
After breakfast on October 20th there will be a presentation regarding immigration, refugees and the refugee family Beth Shalom is co-sponsoring with RefugeeOne. Our sponsorship of the refugee family is partially underwritten by the Wolkin Innovations in Education Fund.
On October 27th, Blessing of the Pets will take place from 12:15 PM until 12:45 PM. But maybe you do not have a pet. Maybe you have been thinking about adopting a pet. If so, please join us for breakfast, which will be followed by a presentation and discussion on Pet Adoption.
If you are unsure about the process, want to know what kinds of pets are available, or if there are any particular challenges with pet adoption, this is a program you will want to attend.
Following breakfast on Sunday, November 3rd, we will hold the first presentation in our To Your Good Health series. The topic this day will be The Health Benefits of Medical Cannabis and CBD.
Debbie, Grace and I would like to wish each of you a very healthy, happy and prosperous New Year - L'Shana Tova!
