Tonight's CBE Sukkot Festivities Moved to CBE and Sunday Sukkah Hop Canceled

Due to the weather, the location of tonight's Erev Sukkot Potluck Dinner, Service, Singalong and Oneg has been changed.  Instead of being held at the home of Jai and Henry Thomas, ALL of tonight's festivities will be held at CBE.  The service and singalong, starting around 6:00 PM, will be available via Zoom also.  In addition, we have had to cancel the Sunday Sukkah Hop.
