President’s Corner

Check in here to get the latest word on our major accomplishments, upcoming events, and your opportunities to participate and contribute from our Men’s Club President Steven Elisco.

The Importance of Flexibility

It has become obvious that to be successful in the remainder of 2020 and throughout 2021, it is going to be imperative to remain flexible.  Flexible in our business lives, flexible in our personal lives, and for the Men’s Club, flexible in our social, educational, and spiritual programming.

When it became apparent to those of us working on the planning of the Steaks in the Sukkah program that the elements of the program that were going to make this ZOOM program different and more creative than others were technologically not achievable, we pivoted.

We moved to an in-person, mask wearing, socially distant tailgate in the school parking lot to watch the Bears vs Buccaneers game.  A pre-packaged skirt steak sandwich dinner was available if you chose to partake, as well as time in the CBS Sukkah to participate in the mitzvah of Bentching (shaking) of the Lulav and Etrog.

To be honest, I do not know how that program tuned out given this article was submitted for printing prior to the program.  I look forward to reporting back to you in the December/January Bulletin.

So, with the anticipation of the Steaks in the Sukkah program being as successful as our Opening Dinner Trivia Tournament, we look forward to the following programs:

  • Sunday, November 22nd at 10:00 AM, will be the second session in the Israel in Depth series. The topic will be, “What Does November 3rd Mean for US-Israel Relations?”
  • Wednesday, November 25th at 7:00 PM – Erev Thanksgiving ZOOM Bingo

Both of these programs will be on ZOOM, but we are working on breakfast options for the Israel in Depth program.  As we continue to develop these as well as other programs, please look for the details and ZOOM invitations included in the CBS Byte and on the CBS Website.

L ‘Shalom

Steven
