Souper Sunday Is Coming Up!
Let’s keep a ten-year-plus CBS tradition alive by gathering before the Super Bowl to assemble soup packets for delivery to Russell Chapel Food Pantry.
We’ll meet at Hillel on Sunday, February 11th at 1 pm and should be done by 3 pm. With this event, we provide 400 nutritious meals each year to those in need, and the soup is so good that CBS has even received fan mail about it!
We will need quite a few more volunteers to make this event work, and we love having soup-makers of all ages. Donations toward the cost of ingredients are also welcome.
Coat Drive In this winter weather, some of our Columbia neighbors need winter coats, gloves, scarves and stocking caps, as well as blankets and sleeping bags, to stay warm.
Last month CBS members donated about a dozen coats to True North for domestic violence survivors and their children, as well as the overnight shelter, Room at the Inn.
Please take a minute or two to check your closets for winter coats, etc. that you can spare. A collection coat rack and a box are located just inside the sanctuary building.

Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski by Clark Young and Derek Goldman
This is a powerful, beautifully written, true story. Our own Aaron Krawitz will portray Jan Karski, a Polish Catholic who joined the Polish resistance during WWII. He learned what was happening to Jews in Poland and, at great personal risk, worked to inform the West. He was captured by the Nazis and tortured but escaped to continue his efforts. In the end, as we know, the Allies did nothing to intervene in the killing, though they were informed.
Julie Rosenfeld and Lydia Redding will perform live, commissioned violin music.
Performance dates are May 17 and 18, and May 24, 25 and 26. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7 pm and the Sunday show is a 2 pm matinee. Tickets are $15 and reservation details will be provided later. The shows will be at Compass, Inc. at 1107 University, in the Hillel Foundation building.
