Rabbi Mina's Greeting

As we approach Rosh Hashanah 5781, I wish you and your loved ones a year filled with health, happiness, and security. The entire CBE staff, lay leadership, and I truly look forward to participating with you throughout this holiday season.

Beginning with our Selichot service, followed by Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, Sukkot services, and finally Simchat Torah services and celebration, each is an opportunity to re-connect to our community, God, and your own soul. 

Our holidays will be very different this year, with opportunities to attend one or more services in person with many health precautions, or online. However you worship with us, I personally wish for you to find spiritual uplift, joy and support in coming together with your fellow members of CBE, and inspiration to sooth your soul. L'Shanah Tova Tikatevu v’Techataymu!  

-- Rabbi Michelle "Mina" Goldsmith
