Featured Events
Be with us for a conversation about Georgia in light of the recent US Senate elections at a special oneg, after services on Fri, Jan 8, as Rabbi Kleinbaum talks with Billy Planer, Founder and Director of Etgar 36 (www.etgar.org), who took CBST on adult and teen civil rights journeys to the South, and who has worked in Jewish experiential education for more than 35 years.

Mazal Tov to Jon Ossoff, the first Jewish person elected senator in Georgia, and to Rev. Raphael Warnock, the first Black person elected senator in Georgia, and the first Black Democrat ever elected to the Senate in the South, on their historic victories! 

"Joy Comes in the Morning!" —Psalm 30

"Warnock delivering remarks virtually: 'The other day, because this is America, the 82 year old hands that used to pick somebody else's cotton went to the polls and picked her youngest son to be a United States senator.'" —Kendall Karson (@kendallkarson), ABC News political reporter, on Twitter

In Case You Missed It
Shabbat Vayechi
Cooperberg-Rittmaster Rabbinical Intern Dave Yedid: "As we enter 2021, let us think about what matters to us: about how we want to live, and in communicating that with clarity, may we enter this year of hope more free and more light. May these conversations, which are clear in our Torah, in Joseph and Jacob's beautiful ends of their lives, continue to be a part of the sacred fabric of our community."

“Bashana Haba’ah” 
Composer: Nurit Hirsh; Words: Ehud Manor
“Bashana Haba’ah” (Next Year) is one of the most well-known Israeli folk songs. The text describes our optimism for a year of prosperity and hope, and celebrates the beauty of daily life. Composed in 1970, this piece has been sung throughout the world for five decades. And now, at the start of a new year, the song has even more relevance, as we pray for a better and brighter future for all humankind. “Od tireh, od tireh kamah tov yi’yeh bashana, bashana haba’a.” You will see, you will see how good it will be, next year.
