Rabbi’s Reflections

The rhythm and tapestry of Jewish time shapes our lives. The
seasons turn, as we anticipate and prepare for sacred celebrations
and festivals in our Jewish calendar. The cycle of joyous affirmations
and the marking of time reaffirm our commitment to life and the
blessings that we have in our midst. Indeed, there is never a “slow”
or “dull” moment on the Jewish calendar!

The festivals of Purim and Passover will be fulfilled and joyously
celebrated in our Congregation Beth Shalom community during the
months of March and April. These two sacred times underscore our
commitment to religious and cultural freedom for the Jewish people
AND all races, creeds and religions.

On Monday, March 9th, all are invited to come in costume for our festive Purim dinner and celebration. At 6:00pm,
we will gather for the mitzvah of celebrating Purim with food and nosh (pizza and salad and parve Homentaschen!),
as well as participate in the mitzvot of shelach manot and matanot l’evionim (gifts to friends and family and
gifts/food to the poor and needy) with the ever fun and tasty silent auction. Then, at 7:00pm, we will join in the
sanctuary for our special family Purim service, megillah reading, songfest and costume parade. Once again, both
youth and adults are highly encouraged to come in costume!

Please join us on Thursday, April 9th, at 6:00pm, for our Congregational Passover Seder. This will be a family
friendly, participatory and lively Seder, accompanied by all of the delicious Passover delicacies prepared by Darryl
and Pat Winer! Family and friends, dramatic readings and stories, classic and creative favorite songs, as well as of
course the traditional foods, highlight this communal celebration! Please note, immediately preceding the
Congregational Seder, we will be holding a Yizkor Service of Remembrance at 5:30pm in the sanctuary. It is
customary on Yom Kippur, as well as the three pilgrimage festivals of Passover, Shavuot and Sukkot to recite
memorial prayers for deceased relatives and loved-ones. All are invited to attend this 20 minute service of
reflection and remembrance.

It is also important to note several other special Shabbat observances and celebrations during the months of March
and April. Please join us for Shabbat services on Friday evenings March 6th & 20th, and April 3rd and 17th, all
commencing at 7pm; as well as the Bar Mitzvah of Landon Sicker on Saturday, April 25th at 10am.

Please join your Congregation Beth Shalom family, as we appreciate the beauties of Jewish rhythm and time, and
celebrate our blessings of life!

May you have a joyous and meaningful Purim and Pesach!
Rabbi Jeffrey and Rhonda Kaye and family

                                                                                                                   1
                                                   President’s Commentary
In May, CBS will hold elections for officers including the positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer and
Secretary. We encourage any member of the congregation who has an interest in becoming a board member to let
me or another member of the board know about your interest. Now is the time to show your interest and support of
our congregation by becoming an involved member. We need you to step forward and help assume the
responsibilities for guiding our congregation. If you want to make changes, here is your opportunity to work from
within.

Rick Wertheimer did a terrific job of guiding our board for almost 2 years. Thank you Rick (and Pam, Mitch & Jack).
Due to family health issues Rick had to step down before the end of his second full year. Board officers hold their
position for 2 year terms.

The rest of the board officers and members have all stepped up to help fill the void of Rick’s duties until we can hold
new elections.

All positions are open, including President. We need, welcome and encourage your involvement. It is very
rewarding to serve your fellow congregants and to have an important role in shaping the current and future of our
synagogue.

Nominations will be received until 1 month before elections are held in May. Notification will be sent out about
candidates so that you can have an opportunity to learn more about these folks and their goals and dreams for our
congregation prior to the May elections.

On another subject, in early February CBS finalized the sale of our house and associated properties to a local
developer. Special thanks goes to our treasurer David Goldstein. Without his help, financial support and guidance,
the sale would not have been possible. Also, thanks to past president Phil Klass for his involvement. Lastly, a big
thanks to Rick Wertheimer for getting this whole sale started in the first place.

The monies obtained from the sale of the house and associated properties will be used to offset the operating
expenses for the business of the congregation.

Please check the CBS calendar for upcoming services, holidays & events. Go to www.cbsdenver.org for the latest
updates.

Thank You

Mike Westerman, President

                                                2008-2009
The Men’s Club is primarily concerned with eating and talking, but regularly lends a hand in other shul matters; like
setting up and taking down tables and chairs, distributing and retrieving prayer books for High Holy Days,
cooperating with the Sisterhood for joint programs, and did I say, eating and talking?

Historically, we have had about two dozen men (and occasional women) attend the monthly brunches through out
the year. Any single meeting typically involves about 12 to 15 people. Certainly enough for lively conversation, but
with plenty of room for anyone else who would like to join in.

Men’s Club Brunch Buffets

When: At 10:00 a.m. the first Sunday of every month (unless it conflicts with a holiday, at which time it moves to the
next Sunday).

Where: In the café at the shul

What: The menu includes the following –
         Nova lox
         Einstein’s bagels variety (toasted and untoasted)
         Whipped cream cheese (plain and onion-chive)
         Kosher dill pickles
         Greek olives
         Tomatoes, onions, capers
         Coffee, juice, pop
         Occasional fresh fruit or sweets

The Freight: $35 per person per year. (That’s an average of less than $3 per brunch – what a deal!) Please bring
your check (made out to CBS).

Come and sit in for some good food and conversation.

                                                  Purim is Coming!

        We are now busy preparing for our very festive holiday of Purim. Our library has many new Purim (and
Passover) books available for all ages. We started collecting shalach manot items for our Purim charity baskets.
Our silent auction for these baskets will start (early viewing) at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, March 9th. Our CBS
Sisterhood will be assembling all our shalach manot baskets items on Sunday, March 8th during Sunday school.
         A fun family-style pizza dinner and Anne the Clown will be here again doing her wonderful face painting for
our children. The Megillah reading service will be following with Rabbi Kaye. Please keep in mind our two charities
this year are The March of Dimes, and Friends of Israel Defense Forces. With ongoing difficult times in Israel, our
hearts go out to these soldiers. In addition, whatever funds made from our silent auction and garage sale will again
be matched for our synagogue by the Molner Foundation. Bring any new, small items to the shul with themes of
leisure time, pizza/pasta, bath time, and kitchen things. All these items can be purchased from Safeway, King
Soopers, Target and WalMart. The more items, the more baskets we will have to auction. Many thanks to the
Sisterhood ladies for all their help.
        We are very excited to have new participants in our art fair contest this year. We welcome artwork from the
Denver Metro Boys and Girls Clubs. Betty Ney has again very graciously offered to judge these entries. Many
thanks, Betty! I think you can all see that we will be having quite a festive Purim celebration this year and we hope
to see you all there.
                                        Happy, Happy Purim and Passover!

                                                     In Our Community
New Caring Committee Formed
As the cold winter weather approaches and different health conditions affecting some of our members are
occurring, we felt the need to form this committee, and to assist our members. Miss Mimi, Martha Menin and Ceil
Lookner are heading this committee. We can always use more volunteers and new ideas. If interested, contact
one of our committee members. It may only involve calling a few of our members, helping supply a family with a
meal, or just a friendly visit or call. If Miss Mimi is brave enough to cook (far from being a gourmet chef…”I just call
it back to the basics”) for a family, so can you. It’s just a nice thing (a mitzvah) to help a family needing some help.
Anyway, call chairpersons Martha, Miss Mimi or Ceil if interested in this committee.


New Membership/Programming Committee Being Formed
We had a successful first membership committee meeting on February 22nd. We welcome all our members to join
this committee. We discussed many new ideas to help build our membership, one of which is to have a sub-
committee focusing on programming. We decided that we need to check out interesting speakers and a variety of
activities to attract new members. Our next project will be to compose a questionnaire asking our members what
specific programs they would like to see at Beth Shalom, including convenient times and dates.

Again, anyone interested in attending these meetings just call Martha Menin (303) 795-6835, or Ceil Lookner (303)
773-0619. The next meeting will be in April, after Passover, and will be announced.

Garage Sale News
We are again planning our 4th annual CBS garage sale. Please save all your used things and bring them to the
synagogue, or call Pat Klass (303) 730-7131, or Miss Mimi (303) 791-6070. We can use all workable tools, toys,
bedding items, frames, clocks, kitchen things, books, small pieces of furniture, gently worn baby and adult clothes,
shoes, purses, etc. Just drop them off during Hebrew school or Sunday school hours. Many thanks to Pat Klass
for again being our co-chairperson. With these challenging economic times, whatever you give us is appreciated.
Don’t forget to think of us while doing your Passover cleaning. Dates for the sale are April 29, 30 and May 1st. If
you would like to volunteer for an hour or two, please call Pat. It would really be helpful to us, and it’s a fun time to

                                                    How You Can Help

King Soopers Certificates

Would you consider doing something important to benefit the synagogue if it did not
cost you any money, effort or time?

Do you eat? Do you know someone who does?

Do you drive a car? Do you know someone who does?

For several years Congregation Beth Shalom has participated in the King Soopers gift card program where the
synagogue has received 5% of all sales without costing our members anything. In spite of our best efforts,
including a dollar for dollar match from an anonymous donor, our success has been limited.

There were always two reasons that people cited for not participating in the program. The first is they don’t shop at
King Soopers, and the second is they prefer to use their credit cards to buy groceries where they can then get
rewards like airline miles, rebates, and points.

PROBLEM SOLVED! Beginning immediately when you purchase any denomination King Soopers gift card
from the synagogue you may reload that card at any time for any amount up to $500.00 at a time USING
YOUR CREDIT CARD.

These gift cards carry a sticker identifying them as a fundraiser for Congregation Beth Shalom, and your reloads
automatically benefit the synagogue. When you have used up a card DO NOT throw it away. Simply reload it for
any amount at the service desk or the checkout stand (before buying your groceries) using cash, check or CREDIT
CARD.

PROBLEM SOLVED! You may use your gift cards at King Soopers gas stations. Their gas prices are
always competitive, but when you accumulate a monthly total of $100 on groceries (using your store
loyalty card) you get an EXTRA $0.10 PER GALLON OFF. (A new Kings gas station is on the northeast
corner of County Line and Holly.)

Every time you buy groceries at King Soopers your checkout tape will show both the total of your monthly
purchases (for gasoline discounts) and the amount remaining on your gift card. Monthly gasoline discount
balances last through the following month.

The stars are now aligned. You can save money on gas, buy your groceries (and gas) with your gift card, receive
all of your credit card rewards and the synagogue will get 5% -WITHOUT COSTING YOU ANYTHING.

Please see Pat Winer to buy your King Soopers gift cards.
Thank you! You have just purchased a new re-loadable King Soopers gift card that benefits Congregation Beth
Shalom now, and every time you reload it. (See the special orange “Fundraiser” sticker on the corner of the card!)
The big new advantage to this card however, is that you may reload it using your charge card. This way you not
only help the synagogue, but continue to get full credit for any airline miles, rebates or points offered by your charge
card company.

                                  Keep Your College-Bound Youth Connected

A new fund has been established at Congregation Beth Shalom targeted at keeping our young adults leaving home
for the first time connected to their Jewish roots and our synagogue. Some of the activities planned by the fund
include a few mailings, all including a letter from the rabbi:

   •   A care package of Passover treats

Also, please let the rabbi know if your post high school (18-25) young adults are in town to receive a service honor.

Please send us the name, year of graduation, school/program, address, and student email. We are asking for a
donation of $36 for this program. Even if you do not have a college (post-high school program) student today,
consider a donation to the CBS Youth Fund of $36 (double chai) or more to help support this worthy endeavor.
Please send your donation to the CBS Youth Fund, PO Box 3107, Littleton, CO 80161. All donations are tax

CBS Youth Fund

The CBS Youth Fund was established to provide for the young adults (post Bat/Bar Mitzvah) in our community. The mission is
to support our children by keeping them connected to their Jewish roots and our synagogue. Initially, the fund will provide for
our college-age children. Depending on the funds we hope to eventually receive, we hope to include gifts for membership to
Jewish organizations and education in the Denver area and perhaps money to those planning trips to Israel. Of course,
donations are more than welcome even if you do not have a student!


Currently, if you have a student at a college/university, please complete the form below and mail in a donation. We will be sending small gifts for
the various Jewish holidays during the school year. We ask for a $36 donation per student. Checks may be designated to “CBS Youth Fund”.

the St. Louis Magazine printed an article about his experience. It is a very well written article and is
age appropriate for younger children, Dr. Schonfeld was only 10 years old when the story takes
place. Just click on the link below and it will take you to the full story of his experience.
