Relay for Life 2020
CBI member Victoria Mayers organized this team to honor family, friends, and community members who are either currently enduring cancer treatments, have survived cancer, or in memory of those who are no longer with us. Consider sharing this opportunity to participate in our synagogue’s RFL team with friends and family members who may be interested in any way: Mayers Strong website

Pride Parade 2018
Thank you to everyone who came out Sunday, July 15, 2018, and walked behind our Congregation Beth Israel banner. It was the third year that Beth Israel marched and showed Bellingham a welcoming Jewish community. Looking forward to next year!

Sandwich makers needed
Interfaith Coalition’s CAST food outreach program (Coffee and Sandwiches Together) has faithfully delivered simple meals of soup, sandwiches and hot drinks four evenings a week, prepared and served by committed volunteers for the past 10 years. Many of the guests – often more than 50 each night – appreciate the simple fellowship as well as the meal.
Needed: Volunteers to help us make sandwiches on a regular basis.
Shifts are available Monday through Thursday afternoons, from 3 to 4 p.m. To become involved in this marvelous program, please contact volunteer coordinator Mary Ann O’Hara by calling (360) 325-2613 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Each year the Social Action Committee organizes Mitzvah Day, which includes a selection of projects for all ages and abilities.
