A Letter From Rabbi Meredith Cahn

Dear B'nai Israel Members,

As you know, B'nai Israel Jewish Center and Congregation Ner Shalom have collaborated for three years now on J School, our Community School for Jewish Learning, the Jazzy Way to Do Jewish (our brand new tag line). We operate on a shoestring, with tuitions from parents, a small scholarship fund from the Federation, a contribution from BIJC and in-kind support from CNS. We are going to be short in our budget this year. So we ask that if you are in a position to contribute to J School, we'd be very grateful. Any funds are welcome and a worthy place to give tzedakah. Please know that your contribution is tax-deductible.

With all of your support, the J School can continue to be a reality for our families.

Rabbi Meredith Cahn
