To Our Dear CAI Community,
Thank you for all of your support during our Israel Solidarity Weekend. We were inspired and enlightened by the music and song led by Rabbi Josh Warshawsky. The concert was an opportunity to be together and amongst our CAI family during this difficult time. We also had an amazing response to our 20th Annual Walk for Israel. The families, friends, and supporters on the street were all there in spirit and solidarity. Thank you for all you have done. We are so grateful to be able to send important donations to Israel at this challenging moment in our Jewish history. Monies will be sent to our focused organizations of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest, the JNF USA, and Masorti Olami. Please note, that we are planning for next year’s walk already, so pencil in November 5, 2024 on your calendars! We invite you to view the highlights from the weekend by watching the video below.
Our Israel support and programming will continue in November. We are hosting a day with Joel Chasnoff, an American comedian and author who made Aliyah years ago and will be sharing the many wonderful aspects of life in Israel. He will also share the resilience of our people under the worst duress imaginable. Come join us on November 29. You can come for a morning cooking event at 9:30 am, or a casual dinner with pizza and falafel, where we will write letters to our many members who have made Aliyah at 7:00 pm, or a “Living Room Salon” at 8:00 pm. Please note the events on the CAI webpage.
We are proud to continue the tradition of CAI as a strong Zionist community. We are here to support our family and friends in Israel. We represent ourselves in our communities and our Men’s Club has sponsored a lawn sign campaign. Please come to CAI to pick up a sign that states, “We Stand With Israel”. Donations are welcome and will be sent to the Israel Emergency Campaign of the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest. Details on how to donate are forthcoming.
Thank you for being part of this campaign.
Chazak, Chazak, V’nitchazek! Be strong, Be strong, and together we will strengthen each other,
