From CTI’s hallway...
...To the INN at
in Glen Cove.
Each year at Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur, CTI conducts a food collection
drive for CTI‘s annual donation to the INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network). This
effort is called PROJECT ISAIAH, and it marks only the beginning of the many
activities that members of our congregation put their hearts, souls, funds
and many long hours of volunteer work into to help and benefit needy citi-
zens of our Long Island community. This year we delivered over 110 bags of
food. We wanted to share, in pictures, part of the ‗high-tech‘ process of how
it gets there.
Also, every year when the ‗food schleppers‘ deliver the food, they are
thanked by the fellows who help carry them into the INN building. It‘s always
an ‗upper.‘ We wanted to let everyone know what one of the guys said this
“Oh my Lord! I never seen so many bags of food in my whole entire life!
Thank God for you folks”
Did you know? The First Baptist Church, that houses the INN on Continental
Place, was once the CTI synagogue.

Limud High with students engaged in both study with the Rabbi and

LIMUD HIGH by Ben Kriegel ELIE WEISEL
Last year, Rabbi Irwin and Fredda met with the children who either had their bar or bat
mitzvah, or who was about to have theirs. They talked about a new program for them that
was starting this year. A Limud High was going to start at CTI for the first time. Limud High
is every Sunday. Their schedule is much different than the pre bar mitzvah class. First,
they meet with the Rabbi. The Rabbi talks about more mature topics with the Limud High
students since they‘re all teenagers. Some of the things they talk about are comparative
religion, gays and lesbians, and current events. The program also consists of community
service. They help out the other Hebrew school classes. One of their favorite classes to
work with is the Kindergarden and First Grade class with Alissa.

point we were afraid we didn‘t have enough space
to lay out everything that our fabulous membership
brought in. There must be whole attics and base-
ments whose floors haven't been seen in decades.
The pictures tell the story. Our hardy volunteers
worked nearly ‗round the clock for days to get it all
ready, and had a few minutes to breath deeply be-
fore the hordes came. It was hectic, but also ex-
hilarating. We always welcome everyone who
wants to have fun and bond with some great peo-

and curiosity which I believe is a life-
long asset to be fostered and encour-
aged. Our experienced educators,
Mrs.B, Miss Alissa, Miss Linda, and
Miss Vicki, are well prepared to take on
this undertaking, as is evidenced by
the smiling faces seen and the laughter
heard throughout our building. We are
off to a great start, and having cele-
brated the Jewish holidays, we look
forward to many events, including our
upcoming annual Fall Fun Day.
Having fun and learning together with
the children is what we all expect, and
it is what happens each and every day
in our very special school.
A Very Jerusalem Sukkot in Glen Cove
It‘s not every synagogue that can boast a freshly cooked,
Israeli meal of falafel with all the trimmings served with
elan and pride in the CTI Sukkah. But then, it‘s not every
synagogue on Long Island that has members Ronen and
Donna Reinheimer slaving away in the kitchen (we‘ll
deal with the ‗slaving‘ at Passover) to produce one of the
best meals we‘ve had on this side of the Mediterranean.
Not only was the food superb, but we were blessed with a
beautiful evening and a standing-room only crowd of ea-
ger and hungry congregants. In fact, if we hadn't freed
the kitchen slaves, everyone agreed that we could have
gone on eating for hours. Fortunately, we had the Rabbi,
his guitar and a great bunch of spirited singers to take
our minds off our stomachs and into the joy of a musical
Sukkot. Falafel wizards, Donna and Ronen, performing their magic in the CTI kitchen
