Revisiting Rabbi Mike's Installation Friday, October 12, 2018
A bustling and joyous crowd filled our sanctuary to celebrate the installation of our beloved Rabbi Mike during the Shabbat service on Friday, October 12. Guest speakers were Susan Lubeck, National Field Director and Rabbi Mike's former colleague at Bend the Arc Jewish Action; State Senator Jamie Eldridge, who presented a citation from the legislature; and Cantor Sarra Spierer, who delivered her own remarks as well as those sent from Jerusalem by Rabbi Emeritus Lewis Mintz.
With the arrival of spring, CBE’s Tree of Life—Etz Haim has been polished and “replanted” on the wall outside the sanctuary thanks to the efforts of CBE volunteers (Bob & Deena Ferrara, Denis & Linda Friedman, Matt Kontoff, and Debbie & Jeff Wesson). This beautifully crafted tree surrounded by brass leaves and rocks provides us with the opportunity to celebrate a lifecycle event while helping our synagogue grow and thrive.
If you would like to celebrate or mark a past or future lifecycle event, such a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, wedding, birth of a child, graduation, award, or any other occasion or accomplishment, please download and complete this form. Thank you for supporting CBE!
