High Holidays 2018/5779 Donate to the High Holiday Appeal — and send your Passover recipes!
I know you get a lot of mail. And, since you’re busy, I know you like to go through it quickly. But I invite you to take your time with this letter. Maybe make a cup of tea. As you sip your tea, take a moment to think about your place at CBE, a synagogue that offers a place to worship, study, gather, cook, grieve and celebrate, a place where one makes life-long connections.
Our recipe to success depends upon you. You are the kind, caring, holy community of Congregation Beth Elohim. You give spice, substance, and essential ingredients that hold us together. With your help we continue to build a community that strives every day to carry out our holy work of performing loving acts of kindness. Every named fund, every annual budget depends upon you.
To grow, we are always looking for the recipe that fits you and your family. In this holy season we are searching for ways for you to help us grow and cook up a metaphorical (Kosher) meal that suits your wants and needs. It is our differences and the delicate mixture of the herbs and spices that make being a part of CBE so compelling.
We are actually looking for your favorite Passover recipes to begin our CBE Passover cookbook.
As you sip your tea, think of what Passover recipe you can share and send it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, subject line CBE PASSOVER COOKBOOK, a project of the Fundraising Committee. If you can, send recipes of your mother, grandmother and children.
We look to you to help us maintain CBE at the highest of standards, provide a place that is warm and welcoming. How can you contribute, giving of your time, talent and treasure. Every moment you volunteer, every talent you share, every contribution you make is significant. All together it makes a cookbook from soup to nuts and a meal to celebrate.
We are so grateful for your support in the past. We need your financial support to maintain a strong foundation so that CBE will be here for your children, grandchildren and beyond. Let us all follow the one hundred percent rule, from soup to nuts – a donation from every member!
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, I ask you to give generously to the High Holiday Appeal.
