Mitzvah Day ~ Sunday, May 4, 2014
It’s always time for a Mitzvah, that selfless, kind act we Jews believe to be a moral obligation. However you look at it (giving back, being a mensch, doing something your mother would tell her friends about), please join us on Sunday, May 4, for CBI’s annual Mitzvah Day – because every day is Mitzvah Day.

Adult Ed Upcoming Program
Readers’ Theater: A Bintl Brief
Monday, May 5, 7:00 PM
Congregation Beth Israel will produce a staged reading of Letters from the World of our Fathers: A Bintel Brief edited by Isaac Metzker. These letters to the editor asking for advice about life in America depict a sense of what the Eastern European Jewish immigrant experiences were. Abraham Cahan, the editor of the Yiddish Forvert, now called The Jewish Daily Forward (still available in Yiddish), began responding to requests for advice in 1906. The column lasted until the 1970s. In 2007, The Forward began A Bintel Blog.
