Food Donation: Can you “cantinue” to replenish the canteen?
A reminder that all donations of canned food needs to be placed inside the building to prevent freezing of canned foods. Please deposit food cans in the collection box (at the entrance to the Sanctuary); providing for the hungry cannot stop after the High Holy days.
Also remember… anytime you come to CBS, it is an opportunity… bring a can with you!. Our religious school children could also get into the Mitzvah habit of bringing a can of food when they attend Religious School or Hebrew School. Then they will realize the need for us to be responsible in caring for others.
Brrrr… It’s Cold Outside
Thank you everyone who has contributed coats, blankets, hats and gloves for those who need to stay warm this winter. CBS has donated about 20 coats to True North and St. Francis House. The collection bin will be in the foyer there through the winter.
Desserts for Loaves and Fishes
It takes our CBS community to fulfill this mitzvah of providing desserts for Loaves and Fishes every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday. Please sign up for your Sunday and deliver to Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church at 702 Wilkes Blvd. between 4:30-5:00 pm. Each family will provide dessert for 40-50 people (2 families for every Sunday). When you drop off your store bought or baked dessert let them know it is from the Jewish community. Thank you so much for your participation!
