Sustainability Study Consultant Hired
We are excited to announce that Tobi Inlender, an experienced development consultant, is joining our Sustainability Study team. This Jewish Community Foundation funded study will help us develop strategies for long-term financial sustainability. David Rosenblum is chairing this effort in partnership with an Oversight Committee composed of senior temple leaders.

Introduce Yourself: Bobbie Allen
What's Your Story?
Hello, I'm Bobbie Allen and I'm a ChaiVillage wonder, as in wonder-ING what I would do without this great community! So, did my husband Ben and I find the Village or did it find us? I know this for sure: Events have blurred into fulfillment. We are immersed in learning, dancing, art classes, movies, and the three Fs: fun, frolic, and of course, food.
