Naso I ... Take a Census

The Eternal One spoke to Moses: "Take a census

of the Gershonites also, by their ancestral house

and by their clans." - Numbers 4:21-22


  • A census of the Gershonites, Merarites, and Koathites between the ages of thirty and fifty is conducted and their duties in the Tabernacle are detailed. (4:21-49)
  • God speaks to Moses concerning what to do with ritually unclean people, repentant individuals, and those who are suspected of adultery. (5:1-31)

Thank you to all our members that were able to attend the Annual Meeting on Sunday, May 7. I hope those of you that were not

able to be there in person have had a chance to review

the meeting slides that were sent out on May 14.

Your Board appreciates those that have stepped up to become a committee member and/or volunteered to help out with our upcoming fundraising efforts. It certainly takes a village , or in our case,

a community, to keep our Synagogue going. There are

plenty of opportunities for others to get involved,

so please contact your Board if interested.

We will be focusing on growing membership, which includes

the addition of Religious School students, reaching out to our community through social action endeavors and keeping

our current members engaged in events/activities.

An activities survey was sent out last week to our members;

if you have not already completed it, please take a few minutes

to do so as we value and need your input and would like to

see each and every member attend our events.

Thank you,

Julie Segal, President, CNT

Religious School

Year End Celebration!

A super fun and tasty time was enjoyed by all.

We need a name!

The fundraising committee is planning a Fall Festival with food, games, music, pumpkin carving and Halloween stuff.

We will have an auction, raffles and a program to sell advertising space. We need a creative name for this October event.

Send your best ideas to 

by May 30. A prize will be given to the person

who submits the chosen name.
