Hi, CBS,
I hope you all are doing well!
As some of you may already know, I am a Chaplain Select for the US Air Force Reserves, and I wanted to take a moment to let you all know that yesterday I received my orders for the summer. I will be reporting for duty this Friday at Robins AFB in Georgia, to begin teaching the new cohort of incoming Chaplain Candidates.
During my time there I will have the opportunity to teach future USAF Chaplains about Judaism, to address the importance of religious accommodation in a religiously diverse space, to provide religious counseling for Airmen on base, and to lead minyanim for Jewish Airmen and Veterans. Over the course of my tour I will be sending email updates to let you all know what I am up to and how the values and experiences of the CBS community are impacting the lives of Jewish and non-Jewish Airmen alike!
I also think it is important for you all to know that while I will be on a short Active Duty tour for the next couple of weeks, I am still your full-time rabbi. I may not physically be here, but I am always available to talk by phone or to set up a Zoom appointment for times that I am not teaching or counseling.
We’ve gotten some amazing momentum going in terms of services and other Jewish activities, and I’ll be using some of my time away to continue planning with various committees so we can maximize the momentum when I return! Be on the lookout for some amazing classes and events that we’ll be offering in August, as well as for some great programming and class offerings as the academic year ramps up!
I’ll talk to you all soon and I’ll send updates!
Rabbi Matt Derrenbacher
2d Lt, USAF
Chaplain Select

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, July 30th, 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 should arrive by 4:30 pm and those serving/cleaning up at 5 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

GARDEN WORK DAYS are from 9 am to 11 am on Wednesday and Sunday. Feel free to contact Noah (HeringmanN@missouri.edu), Brent (brentdeelg@gmail.com), or Julie (jdeering76@gmail.com) for more information.

Happy Hour and Havdalah
Saturday, July 8th

With the hot and dry weather it takes extra water to keep the gardens on each side of the door to the new building looking good.  (These together are the memorial garden.) We need volunteers to take a turn with the watering. Please sign up for a date(s) with the SignUpGenius link below. If you have questions, contact Tanya Christiansen at tj_christiansen@yahoo.com.
