Honoring this Year’s JETY Award Recipients: June 16 and 23

Tuesday, June 6th, 2017

The CBY Brotherhood is pleased to honor Joshua Greenspan, Rachel Broomer and Jordan Drossman as the 2017 recipients of the Brotherhood’s Jewish Teen Youth (JETY) award which recognizes high school juniors and seniors who have exemplified Jewish life through participation in programs that promote Jewish identity and culture.  We will be honoring Josh, Rachel and Jordan, all of whom have all taken steps beyond their Bar/Bat Mitzvah to become deeply immersed in Jewish activities.   

At a time when teens are being pulled in many directions, we feel that their commitment toward Jewish life has been a significant achievement.  We believe that their Jewish leadership skills will transcend their teen years, into college and throughout their entire life to impact the lives of those around them.  
 
Please join us at CBY in honoring this year’s JETY award winners.

Rachel Broomer          June 16      6:30 PM
Jordan Drossman       June 16      6:30 PM
Joshua Greenspan     June 23      6:30 PM

Help Us Resettle a Refugee

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

The plight of refugees has weighed heavily on our faith-based community.  Watching families suffering in war torn Syria, hearing about the persecution of translators who risked their lives to support American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, and reading about the plight of victims of human trafficking has compelled us to act.
 
CBY has joined forces with Pleasantville Community Synagogue and Westchester Jewish Community Services to resettle a refugee family in Westchester.  This sacred work will take a village. The family typically arrives with only the clothes on their backs.  They need an apartment, furniture, clothing, food- all the basics. They need healthcare and ultimately, employment, and, of course, education.  We will help them with all of these and more.
 
We are counting on our wonderful congregation to pledge their time and money to make this a reality. There will be opportunities for everyone, whatever your interests or skills.  If you know someone who has an affordable apartment, if you can shop or cook or drive or teach English, we need you.
