My years of association with CEJE have been a rewarding
experience. There is a spirit of participation and community among families and staff which binds us into a strong congregation.
I have derived enormous pleasure and personal fulfillment from sharing High Holy Day and Shabbat Serivices, as well as life
cycle events, with people so committed to Judaism.
My work with the Bar/Bat Mitzvah students individually
has allowed me to develop a personal relationship with the respective families involved. Visits to the classrooms, where I
have the opportunity to interact directly with the children, provide a wonderful opportunity for all of us to exchange stories
CEJE offers its families a home for worship and celebration,
and its students an enriching curriculum, all amidst an atmosphere of love and warmth. I am very proud to be a part of this
congregation and its absolute dedication to our Jewish heritage.
