Are we agents for G-d? Are we on a mission?

In this week's Torah portion of Shelach, twelve leaders of Israel are sent on a mission to survey the land of Israel. The dramatic story offers numerous lessons on faith, truth, speech, and leadership. The Jewish people were three days away from entering Israel. However, rather than seize this moment, they missed a once in a generation opportunity. The spies and many of the Jews failed in their sacred mission. They failed to build on their past and forge a bridge into the future. 

We are all on such a mission. My father shared with me the words of Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein upon his receipt of an honor in 1986 at the Yeshiva University Rabbinic Alumni Convention. 

His insights resonate deeply particularly as we wish farewell to Rabbi Shakked and Chemda Parhi and their family.  We are eternally grateful for their impact on our shul, school and community. They truly embody the dual nature of shlichut articulated by Rabbi Lichtenstein. 

Rabbi Lichtenstein said, "We should have a sense of ourselves as messengers. A person needs to invest himself with a sense of being a messenger. I see myself as a survivor. I am the only surviving grandson of a paternal grandfather who had eleven children. Today I see myself as a shaliach l'kabalah, a receiver of past messages. I accept this award on behalf of my parents, my rabbeim -Rav Hutner, Rav Shatkes, the Rav, RavAharon Soloveitchik - on behalf of my wife, my children, my friends and students, all who provide the infrastructure so that I can devote myself to Torah. "What is mine is yours."

I am also a shaliach l'holacha, a messenger going forward. This honor is a mantle and a mandate to transmit, to transfer, to hand over in an immediate sense to my children, boys and girls, to my non-biological children as well, my talmidim, to receive and to transmit, which is the essence of Torah. I want to impart what I have absorbed from my home, my teachers, to others.  I want to give students a sense of how meaningful it is to learn an hour of Torah, to do an act of chesed. I live within time, but I also live within eternity. Each act has ultimate significance beyond the here and now." 

We wish the Parhis' much hatzlacha on the continued realization of their life mission to elevate and enrich the Jewish people. May we all be inspired by them to embrace our missions as well. G-d willing, we will all see them again very soon in Israel.

Wishing you and your families a Shabbat Shalom
Rabbi Daniel Cohen

I am in direct contact with the meat VP at Fairway and am passing along your feedback.Please do your utmost to support Fairway and of course all of our kosher establishments. Fairway is committed to the success of the kosher meat department but it is up to all of us to support them and G-d willing create a long term win win for our community.

Additional nominations, with the consent of the nominee, may be made by written petition signed by thirty (30) members of the Congregation in good standing and filed with the Nominating Committee at least ten (10) days before the Annual Meeting, and written notice of the nominations so made by petition shall be given to each member of the Congregation at least five (5) days before the Annual Meeting.

We propose a dues increase effective July 1, raising family membership by $200 and single membership from $50-80, depending on category. We also propose a new category of Patron Membership at $2,750 per family, detailed below. The Board approved this dues increase due to: increasing repair costs for our aging building, higher health care costs, offset the $100,000+ accumulated deficit from prior years, anticipated lower revenue during building re-construction, and increased Youth programming costs. CAS has not increased dues in almost ten years, while costs have increased. Your Board has worked to prudently manage CAS finances.

We will offer reserved seating in all three services this year, based on last year's interest in a third service. The CAS Board approved a new policy for 2015 (not subject to membership vote) . A full policy is posted on line at
  • We have replaced our Tzedakah Program with the Patron Membership category to signify these members' extra support for our synagogue. Patron Members will be entitled to reserved seating on the High Holidays and membership will be acknowledged. Patron membership will be $2,750 per member family.
  • We will offer two seating charts, one for Rosh Hashanah and one for Yom Kippur. We will ask members if they require their seat for either or both holidays. This will allow us to accommodate all seating requests.
  • To ensure continued interest in the third service and to allow us to accommodate all requests, we ask at least 15 member families to confirm their interest in becoming Patron members or reserving seats for this service by July 15. The third service will be held in a special room to be constructed once interest has been confirmed. The third service will begin at 6 AM on Rosh Hashanah and 9 AM on Yom Kippur.
  • We ask members attend one of our three services to help us ensure we meet all member requests. We ask member NOT reserve seats in one service but attend another. We hope to have adequate open seats in each service.
  • Members will receive an email notifying them of the 2015 High Holiday seating reservations. Members will be asked to confirm and pay for their Patron Membership or reserved seats by August 15. If their reserved seats are not confirmed and paid for by that date, the seats revert to CAS and will be reassigned.
 We propose to add paragraphs 5, 6 and 7 to Article II of the Bylaws, so that the Board can: (1) allow participation in meetings by conference calls, (2) use email to allow Board members to approve actions by unanimous consent, and (3) allow participation in meetings and votes by conference calls and emails, provided that a quorum participates in the conference calls/electronic meeting.

I. Implemented Security Measures The CAS Board of Directors has approved and implemented the following security measures: a key pad lock entry system to control building entry during the week; enhanced video surveillance; "panic buttons" to notify police of an emergency; and a Volunteer Patrol Program. Additionally, we have consulted with the Stamford Police Department and are meeting with the US Department of Homeland Security as part of our Security review.

II. Additional Proposed Security Measures This past February we held a Special Meeting open to the Congregation to discuss additional security measures. At such meeting, the Congregation was unable to reach the required consensus on a course of action, but approved revisiting the issue at our Annual Meeting. Accordingly, we request your vote on one of the following options: (1) A paid armed off-duty Stamford police officer on Shabbat and Holidays; (2) A paid unarmed guard on Shabbat and Holidays; or (3) None of the above.

Additionally, please note that since the Special Meeting, several members donated funds for a Stamford police officer to guard CAS on Shabbat and holidays. These funds will run out by June 30, 2015, accordingly, the police officer will only be extended in accordance with the outcome of the vote described above.
