CBI Cares Communal Cooking – A Mitzvah Mensch Activity
Do you enjoy cooking? Would you like to participate in a CBI Cares Communal Cooking group?
In May we will be cooking in the CBI kitchen and making some soup, entrees and desserts to freeze for CBI families in need. Several CBI Cares Mitzvah Mensches made vegetable soup, lasagna, brownies and cookies this winter to put in the freezer for CBI families. We were able to share this comfort food with CBI members and families during their times of illnesses and sorrow.

Join the ranks of Mitzvah Mensches! Please email if you are interested in joining a CBI Cares Communal Cooking group and include whether evenings, daytime or Sundays are best for you.
Thank you!

What makes CBI so special is our wonderful, caring community
.  The CBI Cares Committee invites each of you to participate in our compassionate congregation in a very real way by becoming a CBI Mitzvah Mensch.  What is a CBI Mitzvah Mensch?  A CBI Mitzvah Mensch is someone who performs a deed of loving kindness for someone in the CBI community.

What a CBI Mitzvah Mensch can do:

* Cook/pick up a mitzvah meal for someone recovering from illness/surgery

* Cook/pick up a mitzvah meal for a family sitting shiva

* Deliver a mitzvah meal

* Call or visit someone who is recovering from illness or surgery

* Call or visit someone who would enjoy some company

*Provide transportation for someone in need

* Help celebrate our congregants’ simchas

If you are in need of this kind of support from your CBI community, please contact the CBI Cares Committee at or call Amy at the CBI office (978-474-0540).
