Second Shabbos is Friday, December 10 at the special time of 6 pm, in-person and via Zoom. The early start time is so that families can attend together.
Our guest speaker will be Jenn Book Haselswerdt, our CBS librarian.
Jenn’s topic is “Telling Our Traditions with Stories and Books,” and she’ll provide suggestions for family reading and storytelling.
The famous Second Shabbos bag will contain challah and other Shabbos treats. If you plan to attend in person, we’ll have a bag ready for you to take home.
Either way, sign up by Tuesday December 7, by emailing the office at email@example.com and a Shabbos bag will be awaiting you on Friday either at services or at the farmhouse between 11-1 (special accommodations are quite possible).

Tickets for the 2022 Columbia Values Diversity breakfast are available now and selling fast. This community event will be held at the Holiday Inn Executive Center on Thursday morning, January 13, from 7am – 9 am. A program promoting diversity through the teachings of Martin Luther King Jr. will be presented along with the breakfast.
Because of continued COVID concerns, the overall seating capacity and the number of seats at each table will be reduced. CBS is sponsoring a table as a “Friend” but this year we will not be reserving a table.
Also – again this year, CBS is collecting coats, blankets, sleeping bags, gloves, scarves, and winter hats, to be distributed through several shelters. A hanger box is in the foyer of the sanctuary. Please help fellow Columbians stay warm during the cold months.

Desserts for True North
The True North shelter had a flood and they are not accepting any food donations right now. Our CBS coordinator, Michelle Golden, will keep in touch with them and when they are back up and running we’ll post the information here.
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.
