March Into Men's Club

It's Lox Box time.  About the same time you receive this Bulletin, we will be on the verge of packing and delivering our lox boxes.  Please join us for packing the lox boxes on Saturday night, March 4th at 7:00 p.m.  This is a great time for your family and you to join your fellow CBS members in a night of packing our lox boxes and camaraderie.  Please bring your kids as they have a blast assisting us with placing the product in the lox boxes and putting together the chotzke bags.  Please also be on the lookout for delivery of your lox boxes on March 5th.  I would like to thank all the members of Beth Shalom for their continued support of this program.   Aside from ordering lox boxes for your friends, family and yourselves, we were able to feed several hundred needy members of our community with your generous donations to the Ark and Council for Jewish Elderly.   Thank you to our Vice President of Ways & Means, Steven Elisco, and his entire committee for their hard work this year in putting together another successful and delicious lox box for all of us to enjoy.   .

Our Man and Youth of the Year lunch is just around the corner, on March 19th at North Shore Suburban Synagogue Beth El, 1175 Sheridan Road, Highland Park, Illinois.  The event starts with silent auction at 1:0 p.m. followed by lunch and the awards ceremony. Help us honor our Man of the Year, Dan Sher, and Youth of the Year, Bari Sigal, with your presence at the event.  You can sign up for the luncheon on the Midwest Region FJMC's website.

Men’s Club will be serving lunch for the Purim Carnival on March 12th.  We openly welcome all Men’s Club member to hop behind the serving counter and help us serve up the hot dogs, falafel, chips and soft drinks to the CBS community.

Please also join us for our third installment of our Hearing Men's Voices program on March 19th with breakfast at 9:30 a.m. followed up by a meaningful and inspirational discussion about our health as men and what we are doing to take care of ourselves.

On April 8th we will have our Men’s Club Shabbat.  Please join your fellow Men’s Club members for this special Shabbat morning as we all celebrate Shabbat and conduct the morning service.  We will also be honoring this year’s highly deserving Kavod Award winner,  Brad Shaps.   Please join Brad, his wife Gail and their daughters Jaclyn and Erica as we honor Brad at the service.  Please see our Men’s Club Shabbat flyer in this Bulletin for further information about this event and for Brad’s incredible biography.
