   Can you envision success in your life? In the world of sports, visualization techniques are the province of elite athletes as noted in a recent NYT article.  

   Judaism firmly believes in the idea of mind over matter, and that the power of positive thinking applies in all spheres of life. As Theodore Herzl remarked, "If you will it, it is no dream." As we celebrate the life of our beloved Rabbi Ehrenkranz, we recall how he exuded this attitude. His dream in the 1940's is our reality today and, G-d willing, we will continue to build our vibrant vision of a Torah community.

   Rashi in Parshat Pekudei expresses this idea in Chapter 39:33. Moshe had trouble building the mishkan due to the weight and G-d enjoined him to visualize the building and, miraculously, the building arose.

   In life, we cannot be assured of achieving all of our goals but the very first step is seeing the possibilities and envisioning our success with the help of G-d.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Daniel Cohen

P.S. Please see my Huffington Poast Blog-Eternity in an Hour: In Tribute to Rabbi Joseph Ehrenkranz 

P.P.S Thank you very much to Sharon Rubin for her dedicated service to CAS.

Rabbi Yehuda Jeiger


   My husband Benjy Brown is in dire need of a kidney transplant.
   Benjy has been by my side at The Alan T Brown Foundation for over 26 years and involved in changing many people's lives. We have been married for 50 years. We have a strong family, but it is imperative that we contact as many people and sources as possible locally, nationally and internationally to find a kidney for him.
   I hope you will consider finding out if you are an eligible kidney donor for Benjy.  If so, please contact Andrea to register at 212-746-3922. You will be given the details of how to proceed with the eligibility process. Please say that you are considering donating for Benjamin Brown who is a registered recipient. This process is being coordinated through The New York Presbyterian Hospital at the Weill Cornell Kidney Transplant Center.
   Living donors, including relatives and friends, can donate a kidney. Transplants function successfully from related and unrelated living donors.
   I know the importance of reaching out to people and "being there" for others. This is the ultimate kindness that one can extend to a relative, friend or someone they may not even know.
   Please visit Benjy's web page at
In gratitude,
Fran Brown

An important role of the Chesed committee is outreach to the Shul's elderly and homebound, who are often isolated and lack a lifeline to our synagogue. We are asking for volunteers, from our congregation, willing to reach out to these members to offer an ear, identify areas of need, make a visit, or offer a ride to a doctor's appointment. Even small gestures mean a great deal and do not take much time.  If you would like to volunteer, please contact Vivian Weiss at 203-323-0909 or If you are aware of any elderly or homebound shul members in need of outreach, please notify Rabbi Cohen.


As you know, every Shabbat we station ushers at the doors in the sanctuary to welcome people, assist them and enhance the dignity of the service. In an effort to create an even warmer environment, we are expanding the usher roles to include a greeter in the lobby from 9-10:30 am. Please join the usher team. We need you and your smile. To find out more and sign up, contact Mitchell Bell.
