Join a Chavurah to Connect with CST Members Who Share Your Interests
A Chavurah is a group of CST members who meet from time to time to share a meal, take a hike, enjoy a ball game, or participate in any number of interesting activities. There are many existing Chavurot to join, or consider starting one of your own. If you’d like to learn more about this easy and informal way to build community and connect with fellow CST members, email or call Denise in the synagogue office at 707-578-5519 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Pictured at left, a special Shabbat Oneg on January 29 where the Chavurah Committee hosted a gathering of current and prospective Chavurah members.
Bikkur Holim, visiting the sick, being there for people when they are in need, is a basic Jewish value, and an essential element of a caring community like Shomrei Torah. Shomrei Torah members want to be there to help each other when we are down, and we want you to know you can call for help when you are in need.
Recently we have experienced an increased request for food deliveries to CST members in need of help after surgery, cancer treatment, chronic illness, etc. When you are making soup or a main dish and could make extra food, it would be most appreciated. We can help to make the delivery if you don’t drive. You don’t need to become a committee member to participate in this mitzvah.
Please contact the office if you can offer an occasional gift of food. Thank you!
Cancer Resource Team At Your Service
If you were recently diagnosed with cancer, other members of the congregation have experienced similar challenges and want to help. Would you like someone to talk with you and/or members of your family? CST will listen, answer your questions and hold your hand. Contact Susan Richter to be paired up with someone on the resource team. For those who may be interested in joining the team, please contact the office to be put in touch with the project leader.
Men’s Bagel Club
Please join us at 9:00AM on the first Sunday of each month for the Men’s Bagel Club, a nice morning of discussion and friendship. See the Calendar for upcoming dates. As always, ladies are also invited.
At a recent Rabbi’s Tisch, there was a chili tasting contest hosted by the Men’s Bagel Club. Here are the top 3 recipes:
