This year’s CKS Annual Meeting was a positive reflection on who we are and where we are going as a community. The Wednesday evening event was well attended, relaxed, informative and reaffirming.
I opened with a list of all of the wonderful accomplishments and achievements that had occurred this year’s past. I cannot list them all but if I had to choose one that represents them all it would have been the acquisition of our new Torah scroll. That act was a statement of our generosity, our devotion to Jewish tradition, education and spirituality. In the welcoming of the new Torah, we saw a community face its diversity of views and ultimately work through them with patience, grace and respect and as a result, grow stronger together.
Clergy, teachers and volunteers were thanked and Steve Louis was reconfirmed unanimously as Vice President. Lew Mandell presented a clear and beautifully presented budget that demonstrated our strong financial status and what is being projected for next year.
Once again the call for engagement and volunteerism was advanced and the reality that we have no existence without our volunteers was made evident.
Concluding, various congregants spoke on various aspects of what we do and have accomplished such as interfaith work and Super Supper to mention a few. Many thanks to those who attended and I hope that we continue our evolution and move from strength to strength in the coming year.

A Special Invitation To Women
(MONTHLY - watch this space for details)
Please join us on August 7, at 4:00 p.m. for Spiritual Journeys, A Rosh Chodesh Celebration of the New Moon facilitated by Rabbi Joyce Reinitz
Throughout the ages, Jewish women have gathered at the New Moon seeking spiritual development, renewal, healing and friendship. Come and explore the mysteries of Rosh Chodesh. Through study, discussion and guided imagery meditations discover the special themes of the month and learn how to apply them to your own life.
The group setting is informal and participatory. No prior knowledge or experience is required. This is a fun way to learn and share with others.

Inaugural Meeting of the CKS Genealogy Group
TUESDAY, AUGUST 2, 6:30 P.M - 8:30 P.M.
Interested in genealogy? Curious about ancestral origins? Want to find out more about DNA testing? Come to the first meeting of the new CKS Genealogy Group. We plan to hold regular meetings with various topics depending on interests of the group. For this first meeting, resident experts Steve Louis and Barry Spinak will answer questions and present introductory material on how to get started in genealogy (including how to use important internet resources), some of the problems specific to Jewish ancestry, and information on DNA tests popular for genetic genealogy investigation.
While several genealogical societies already exist serving Seattle, Bainbridge Island and Kitsap County, this will be our own CKS group where we can focus on the interests of congregants and friends. Information will also be provided at the meeting about the 36th International Conference on Jewish Genealogy, conveniently being held this year in downtown Seattle on August 7-12.
Please join us for this first meeting of our Genealogy Group and help plan its future direction and topics.
For more information, please contact Steve Louis
