Happy Hannukah!

Hanukkah is fast approaching! We hope you will participate in our Mensch on a Bench Fundraiser.

Mensch on a Bench was created by a Jewish father who wanted to teach his sons about the Jewish holiday while adding new traditions to the family. First came the story of Moshe the Mensch who helped Judah Maccabee at the Temple. Moshe played dreidel, loved gelt, and was a true Mensch. Next came the doll which could hold the Shamash candle and watch over the Menorah.


The cost to participate is only a minimum contribution of $36 to select up to 5 CBS families. Additional families are $5.00 each – or make a $252 contribution to select ALL of your fellow CBS members and send a Mench on a Bench to everyone at CBS!

Israel News
  • My word: Checks and balancing acts

    Security checks are necessary – all Israelis are used to opening their bags and passing through metal detectors before being allowed to enter a bus or train station, shopping mall or concert hall.
  • South African Jews deny reports of arrest warrants for IDF soldiers

    Community leaders denounced as a lie reports that South African police were now ready to arrest top IDF commanders involved in the Mavi Marmara 2010 flotilla incident.
  • Into the Fray: Immoral!

    It is becoming increasingly egregious to persist with the shabby charade that any consensual resolution to the “Israeli-Palestinian conflict” is possible.
