CBS Annual Meeting and Board Elections

This year, we will hold our CBS Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 19 at 10 am. The meeting will be both in person and via Zoom; the link will be posted prior to the meeting.
Each year, three members of our nine-member board have their terms expire, and the congregation elects three members to three-year terms. This year, the terms of Michael Gardner, Seth Rosner, and Tim Parshall will expire. Michael has indicated his willingness to stand for election for another term. Seth and Tim have indicated their intention to leave the Board upon the expiration of their terms.
The nominating committee is now accepting nominations for candidates for three positions on the CBS Board of Directors.
Any member of the Congregation in good standing who is interested in serving on the Board should contact Tim Parshall, president of the congregation, to express a desire to serve; please submit a brief paragraph stating your reasons for serving.
The deadline for nominations is April 17. Tim will forward names to the nominating committee to evaluate the candidates’ qualifications. The committee will then propose a slate of three candidates for consideration at the annual meeting. The composition of the slate, along with the names of any other candidates, will be shared with the Congregation in advance of the annual meeting.
Regardless of whether the nominating committee puts a candidate on the slate, all candidates considered by the nominating committee are free to run, and the congregation may elect any three of the candidates. Because of the logistics of a hybrid meeting (with virtual and in-person participation), we will not accept nominations from the floor at the annual meeting. In other words, only members of the congregation who express interest to the nominating committee by April 17 may run for the board at the annual meeting.
Anyone with questions about the process, or interested in serving on the Board, should contact Tim Parshall: thpcbs21@gmail.com or 573.489.9987. The members of the nominating committee are Ben Trachtenberg (chair), Shari Weinman, and Mary Hartigan.
We thank you for considering service to CBS, and we look forward to seeing you virtually or in person at the annual meeting.

l to r: Amy Simons, Howard Reich and Rabbi Matt Derrenbacher

What a week! Our community extends a tremendous thank you to Howard Reich for spending a few days with us, sharing his story and the story of his family. He touched the hearts of many who attended the events with his deeply moving account of the many ways the Holocaust affects the lives of the next generations.
Thanks to CBS, Mizzou Hillel and the Jonathan B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism for making this possible.

Remember This: The Lesson of Jan Karski is a play by Clark Young and Derek Goldman and directed by Heather Hatton. Aaron Krawitz plays Karski, with live music by Julie Rosenfeld and Lydia Redding.
This is the true story of Jan Karski, a Polish Catholic who joined the Polish resistance during WWII.  He learned what was happening to Jews in Poland, was taken to the Warsaw ghetto and an early Polish concentration camp, and worked to inform the West while there was still time to stop it. His legacy of moral courage reminds us of the results of prejudice and hate.
Performance dates: May 17, 18, 24, 25 and 26. Friday and Saturday shows are at 7 pm and the Sunday show is a 2 pm matinee. Tickets are $20 for all performances; click
here to order. Shows will be in the Compass Listening Room at Compass, Inc. at the Hillel Foundation, 1107 University Ave.
