Share the Light

Thank you to everyone who participated in Share the Light, a program organized by Temple Emanuel, to purchase holiday gifts for children in need in our communities. CBI has been participating for more than ten years. This year, thanks to the generosity of our CBI community, we are also participating in Operation Elf, a charity started by our own members Sarah Blumenstock Girrell and Kris Girrell. Operation Elf provides gifts for children who are wards of the state or are in transitional living situations, including those associated with Jewish Family and Children’s Services, among others. Special thanks to Rebecca Fishbein and Robin Rose for organizing these special programs!

Lazarus House
Please join us as we serve a meal at Lazarus House on Sunday, December 29, to families in their transitional shelter during the holidays. We are looking for volunteers to cook dishes for about 25 people and to serve between 4:30 and 7:00pm. If you’d like to contribute, please contact Amy Friedman Lee at

Thank you for joining us in Tikkum Olam!
