Do you like to bake?

If you would like to provide a tray of goodies for the Erev Rosh Hashanah Oneg, please bring five dozen baked goodies to the services on the evening of September 9th. If you have any questions, please contact Camille Greenwald at 314-614-3619 or camille.greenwald@gmail.com. The trays will be available in the Oneg in late August, so come and get them!

It takes a village!

We need lots of help over the many days during the high holidays. One of the most important things that you can do to help is to
usher during and after one of the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services at the JCC and CRC. Consider doing it as a family or just by
yourself. Email Nancy at nancy@centralreform.org if you are interested in helping out.

Mark your calendars, newlyweds!

Mazel Tov on getting married this year!

CRC was thrilled to be part of your special day. You may or may not know that at CRC a tradition is to have couples that were married by our Rabbis during the year bring a honey cake (or two) to Rosh Hashanah services.

We place all of the honey cakes under a Chuppah and encourage members looking for that special someone to go to the honey cake table. It’s a nice way to share your love and encourage others to find what you have. You may buy or purchase your honey cake- either way is great. Simply bring it with you to Rosh Hashanah services and we will direct you where to put it.

This year, the honey cake table will be at Erev Rosh Hashanah Services at the J in Creve Coeur on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at 8 pm.

Questions? Want a good recipe or want to know where you can buy a honey cake? Contact Jennifer Fishering at 314.361.1564, ext 101 or jen@centralreform.org.

P.S. – even if you haven’t gotten married in the last year, but you want to spread the love, you are welcome to bring a honey cake!
