Raffle Winner!

Yes, we have a winner!

Our winner for the Simchat CSAIR ticket raffle is David Cohen. The contest entries were all placed in a hat and at 12 noon in the synagogue offices Eric Nussbaum closed his eyes - reached in - and randomly picked the winner.

To our other contest participants - sorry you didn't win and thank you very much for participating. Your entry and donation does count for something - we will list you in our full page ad as a contributor in support of the event.

See you Sunday night! Don't forget about the the Salute to Israel Day Parade this Sunday. Join the CSAIR Hebrew School as they march with JNF in the Salute to Israel Day Parade. A bus will leave CSAIR at 9:30 am and will return after the group has completed marching the parade route. For more information, contact Mason Voit.

Also, just a friendly reminder about the Bone Marrow Registry Drives for Matt Fenster at the Israeli Day Parade this Sunday -- please make sure to stop by one of the stations at the Israeli Day Parade this Sunday, May 23rd. It only takes a little bit of your time -- just a few swabs on the inside of your cheek, and it means so much. The stations will be at the following locations:
