Reflecting on Thanksgiving and looking forward to a prosperous 2022!

I hope everyone had a good holiday of Thanksgiving this past month. I know
that the time away from Macon gave me a chance to take the time to think of all
the things I was thankful for. I am thankful for my family, friends, my family’s
health, and all that I have and am able to do, but I am also thankful for our
Congregation here at CSI. We are very fortunate to have such a caring and
giving group of people that are there in times of trouble to help each other get
through whatever is the problem at the time. If any of you are ever in need,
please feel free to speak to anyone on our Board or Rabbi Rubinstein. If one of
us cannot help, we can try to find a solution to the problem. You will never know
until you ask.

As November has drawn to a close and December is here, we are looking
forward to a very early Hannukah! The rest of the month is also going to be
busy with the Bat Mitzvah for Kimarra Heard on December 11th . The service
will be available via in person and on zoom. Look at your weekly service email
for more details. The rest of the month, Rabbi Rubinstein and Jeff Lehman will
be conducting services.

I want to thank all of you who have contributed this year to our annual fund
drive. As our tax year is coming to a close, I wanted to remind all of you who
have not contributed to think of making a donation to CSI before year end.
Those deductions can really add up when looking at getting your paperwork
together to file your taxes, and we would really appreciate any of you
remembering CSI on your list of donations before year end. Of course, if you
have already given, we appreciate what you have already donated and will
welcome any additional amount you are able to give.

As January is just around the corner, Jeff and I want to wish all of you a happy,
healthy, and prosperous 2022!

Hope to see all of you in shul or on zoom!
