Men’s Club Announces Our Man and Youth of the Year!

It is awards season everywhere and here at Congregation Beth Shalom is no exception. Each year, the Men’s Club honors individuals that make our congregation, community, and world a better place.

Man of the Year Award
With this award, we honor a member of our Club who goes above and beyond in helping make our Men’s Club one of the finest in the country. This year we are thrilled to be honoring Howard Jacob as Congregation Beth Shalom Men’s Club Man of the Year. Howard is always a huge help to our Men’s Club. He has singlehandedly updated and maintained our section of the website including through the last two major overhauls of the CBS main website. In addition, Howard has helped our Men’s Club and the synagogue with marketing, ensuring our flyers are consistent and stay on message, and really overall carrying out the look and branding of our world-class CBS Men’s Club.  Howard and Laurie have been members of Beth Shalom for more than 26 years.

Youth of the Year Award
In coordination with our USY Youth group, we also honor an outstanding young member of our congregation with the Youth of the Year Award. This year our Men’s Club is honoring David Zelkowitz as our Youth of the Year. David is the immediate past president of the CBS USY chapter and the son of our very own Alan Zelkowitz. 

Please help us honor both our Man of the Year, Howard Jacob and our youth of the Year, David Zelkowitz with your presence on Sunday, March 3rd at the Midwest Federation’s Man of the Year Dinner at Anshe Emet Synagogue, Chicago, IL. You can also help honor them by placing an ad in the Tribute Book. Go here to register and/or purchase an ad. 

Please note that on February 3rd we have our World Wide Wrap. Spiritually enlighten your Sunday as we share the experience of the mitzvah of laying Tefillin with your fellow congregants along with tens of thousands of people around the world on this special communal event. We follow this up with our fabulous Men's Club breakfast.

Finally, it's LOX BOX TIME! Sunday, March 3rd is the delivery date. Orders are due by February 27th! Order early and order often. Order for a friend, order for a family member, contribute boxes to the Ark and CJE and order for yourself. Please see the order form on page 4 of this Bulletin and online through our website here.

I hope to see all of you at our upcoming events.
