MLK Jr.

Honoring Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Monday, January 17th, 2022

In remembrance of Dr. King, we encourage members of our congregation to honor his legacy by performing acts of community service. There are many ways that you can participate by volunteering, and donating items, food and funds to nonprofit organizations that actualize his “Dream.”

Tu B'Shvat

Tu B’Shvat

January 17

Tu B’Shvat or the “New Year of the Trees” is Jewish Arbor Day. . Scholars believe that originally it was an agricultural festival marking the emergence of spring. Many people plant a tree in Israel in honor or memory of loved ones and friends for Tu B’Shvat. You can plant a tree in Israel, too, by visiting the Jewish National Fund website, and clicking on their link to plant a tree.

R.G. Burgers

Best Years Lunch

January 26 at Noon

Join us as we enjoy what is clearly one of the most popular Best Years events, enjoying a nice lunch at a local restaurant. This month let’s dine on hamburgers, sandwiches, and salads (fries too!). We will meet at RG Burgers located in the Crossroads, or call the synagogue to carpool with the rabbi. This free lunch, paid by the CBI Senior Endowment Fund is always a fun gathering. To RSVP for this program call the CBI office.
