Come join the women of CBS Sisterhood for a dinner out. We will meet at different restaurants each month and have a nice meal. Everyone pays for themselves.

We will meet Sunday, January 15 at 6:30 pm at Szechuan House, 21 N Providence
Rd. Please RSVP to Laura at flacks-narroll@hotmail.com. All are welcome.

If there’s one thing Jews can agree on it’s the love of Chinese food! The Szechuan house is back and the food is great. Let’s enjoy together.

Next month’s meetup will be February 12th, and the location will be decided at this month’s dinner.

CBS Book Club
The CBS Book Club will meet on Sunday, January 22, at 4 pm – note time change. We will discuss Kristen Hannah’s The Nightingale.

In months with a fifth Sunday, CBS provides a full dinner to fellow Columbians in need through the Loaves & Fishes program. We are serving Sunday, January 29th, and we need donations of food items as well as volunteers to set up, serve, and clean up.

Click here to sign up to help/bring food.

Bring food to Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd. (back entrance), before 4:15 pm that day. Volunteers setting up/serving/cleaning up should arrive by 4:30 pm. We expect to serve about 150 people, and the need for volunteers to serve is especially critical.

With questions, please contact Noah at heringmann@missouri.edu or Brent at brentdeelg@gmail.com.

Ethan Bereskin, the young son of Shoshana and Fred Bereskin, is receiving treatment for an aggressive cancer at Children’s Hospital in St Louis.

A family friend has organized a Meal Train to help provide meals for the family while Ethan has chemotherapy at Children’s.

We continue to say mi shebeirach for Ethan every time we gather for services. Please consider helping the family in a practical way as well.
