Passover will be here before we know it! First seder is Monday, April 10. If you have room at your seder or would like to be invited to a CBE family seder, please call the office. Also, the Rabbinical Assembly Passover Guide, CBE Passover service times, children’s programming, gift shop discounts, Passover recipe exchange, and MANY more Passover resources are available at www.bethemeth.org/passover-2017.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at the 'Give My Regards To Broadway Silent Auction and Cocktail Party' in late February! We still have some items available for purchase. Please check them out at this link. Thanks for your support of the BEECC PA!

Call for Greeters: Looking for an easy, gratifying way to get more involved at CBE? Join our Greeter List! We hear what a difference it makes to be warmly greeted with a smile each Shabbat. Our guests appreciate having someone who can direct them to the kippot, sanctuary, or restroom and who can answer basic questions. Training provided. You’ll determine when and how often to volunteer. Try it once, you’ll enjoy it!  For more information contact Jackie Shapo, Secretary, at [email protected].

Executive Director Search. CBE’s first (and only) executive director, Linda Eisinger, has announced that after 23 rewarding years, she will retire from her role. Linda has set a very high bar for her replacement, and so an Executive Director Search Committee is hard at work. More details about the search are available in the March Shofar. If you know of any interested candidates (they do not need to be working as Jewish professionals; candidates from other backgrounds are welcome), please refer them to the job posting at www.bethemeth.org/executive-director-search. If you have questions or suggestions for the Search Committee, please contact [email protected].

Camp Kaitana is looking for teenagers to volunteer to help out at our preschool day camp this summer! Contact Judy Fox-Tepper at [email protected] or 703-860-4515 ext. 115. These are unpaid positions for volunteer hours.

Do you need a ride to come to CBE services and events? Can you help provide rides to CBE services and events? As a congregation, we want to make sure that all congregants wishing to participate in any CBE event can do so even if they cannot drive themselves. So we started a new Mitzvah Brigade Ride Board to match those members who need a ride with those who can help. We are primarily using an online signup at www.tinyurl.com/CBE-Rides. You can also request a ride by phoning the office at 703-860-4515 ext 101.
