Dinner for Loaves & Fishes
Every fifth Sunday, Congregation Beth Shalom provides a full dinner to our hungry neighbors through the Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen based at Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd.
October 31st is our next assigned Sunday. We need food donations as well as volunteers to set up, serve, and clean up. Food items should arrive at the church (back entrance) between 4 pm and 4:15 pm. Volunteers should arrive by 4:30 pm. We expect to serve about 100 people.
Thank you for the outstanding number of responses we received from the congregational survey last August. And thank you for your patience awaiting a report based on the data obtained. Rabbi Cohen, Janna Lancaster and I met with our URJ mentor on October 13 and will be meeting with her again in November to develop recommendations and action items based on survey data. After that a presentation will be made to the Board, followed by a report to the entire congregation. Please bear with us for a few more months while we do a careful and thorough analysis of the information gathered.

Out of the Darkness Walk
On Sunday, October 24th, a CBS team will join the 2021 Out of the Darkness walk, a benefit for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
The walk is from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm at Stephens Lake Park, 2001 E Broadway. Registration begins at 11 am, but it’s also ok to just show up and walk with the group at 1:30 pm – the money raised by our team will go where it needs to go whether we register on-site or not. There will be some inspirational talks and opportunities to pick up t-shirts (for teams that raise $150 or more).
CBS helps True North feed the women and children in their shelter by supplying desserts/snacks once a week. The residents make their own meals and this helps them greatly!
If you can help, plan for around 40-50 people. Drop off the goodies between 9 am and 7pm Thursday through Saturday for the week you sign up. Since they keep their address private (due to the nature of their services) please call ahead and let them know you are on your way: 573.875.1370. Ring the doorbell and tell the staff that you are from CBS, dropping off food for the residents.
Please label your treats with any allergens – dairy, nuts, etc., in case a resident has an allergy.
The Anti-Defamation League offers its annual summit on antisemitism and hate, Never is Now, November 7-9. The summit is virtual and free to attend. Speakers include Yair Lapid, Israel’s Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Donations to CBS are a good way to remember or honor people and special life events. Your gift can be directed to the CBS general fund, the rabbi’s discretionary fund (RDF), the library, the Sasha Yelon book fund, the school scholarship fund or the sacred music fund.
Send a check to CBS, 500 W Green Meadows Rd, Columbia 65203, with a note with details about honorees and where you’d like the notification sent. We’ll send a handwritten card as you direct.
