Shabbat Shalom
As I shared in last week's sermon, although we live in America, we are one people. In the spirit of Avraham, we cannot sit passively while our brothers and sisters fight on our behalf. We must opt in to Judaism and advocacy for Israel. This bulletin lists multiple ways we can (and should) express our solidarity with our nation and people. Here is a link to the sermon recorded post Shabbat.
On another note, we are blessed, thank God, with many new families moving into our community. Last year, we welcomed 25 new members! As CAS grows, we strive to do our best to warmly welcome new families. If you know of new people in our community, or would like to be included on an email list with periodic updates about new families so you can host them for Shabbat, please contact me or Jessie Brand (
Also, as the clock changes, we often get calls from people who are "stuck" in Stamford for Shabbat and require last-minute hospitality. If you would like to be included on this list, please let me know as well. In the spirit of Avraham, it is a great mitzvah of hospitality!
Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Daniel Cohen
LIPS - Love Israel Products Society - A Steering Committee is in formation to launch a new project - LIPS -Love Israel Products Society. The effort is being spearheaded by one of our members, Lola Halperin, in coordination with Rabbi Cohen.

If you would like to be part of the team - teens and adults welcome - and have a specific area for contribution (we need individuals with diverse expertise such as photography, video, social media, legal advice etc), please be in touch with Lola ( or Rabbi Cohen ( in the weeks ahead. The first meeting will be held in November. Thank you very much!
