Omer 38: Gifts of the Heart

Omer Day Thirty-Eight

Last night we had an historic celebration at CBE, taking the first in a series of serious steps to raise the money we need to rebuild and renew our sacred spaces.

Thanks to the generosity of so many people in the Congregation, in Brooklyn, and Beyond, we raised more than $200,000 for "This Old House."

The sense of shared destiny was really evident as several generations made the journey together to set a new bar for coming together as one, celebrating our history and looking toward a promising future of providing Torah, Worship and Acts of Lovingkindness to our community. 

We are humbled and honored by the generosity of so many people and will continue to look forward to future acts of community, generosity and friendship in the months and years ahead.

Shabbat Shalom!
