President’s Message

It was with deep regret that we received the unexpected resignation of our spiritual leader, Rabbi Alan Greenbaum.  Although we had agreed to renew his contract for another year, he decided the time was right for him to fully retire.  We will miss him and wish him the very best.

Knowing how much our community enjoyed having Rabbi Greenbaum conduct our services and lead us in Torah study, we hope that our congregants will continue to support us by attending services led by various members of our congregation while we begin a search for a replacement.

We will continue to hold our monthly Friday evening services, utilizing the talents of our members, along with the possibility of having a guest rabbi lead us in prayer on occasion.  However, we will suspend our Torah study and adult education during this period.

Also, we will not be holding our annual Community Seder this year, but encourage you to hold your own Seders with your family and friends on the first two nights of Passover – April 10 and 11.

In the meantime, should anyone know a rabbi who might be interested in becoming the rabbi of CBS, please pass this information along to me or any member of our board of directors.

I hope to see you at services on the third Friday of each month (except for April).

Tony Kurlan, President
