Fellow Congregants,

We are excited to announce that we have signed the lease to move to Dundee Park in Andover, and
will soon have the key to our new building. We want to thank Jeff and Orit Goldstein for their generosity to
help us secure this location, as well as Jim Shainker for his leadership and hard work in searching for and
procuring our new space.

The new location in Andover includes a large sanctuary area where we’ll be able to hold High Holiday
services and life cycle events, in addition to a smaller room that will be perfect for dinners, special events, and
even some services. With our own first floor, handicap accessible entrance, restrooms, and kitchen we believe
our new space will be a great fit for our needs and provide room to grow. We will look to set up a date in
May for anyone interested in seeing the space.

We do have a lot of work ahead of us to move into and set up our new home for us all to enjoy! Please
be on the lookout for details on how you can help, as we will need everyone’s assistance to make this happen.

We are happy to say it looks like Spring is finally coming to New England. Although Passover is
behind us, it is not too late to make a donation to the Passover Appeal that went out last month. If you haven’t
contributed yet, please consider sending something in. The synagogue does depend on it.

Enjoy the warm weather, and we look forward to seeing you all at upcoming services and special
events at CBI!

Robin Rose and Howard Spector
