From Brotherhood President Garrett Butenhoff – November 1, 2018 from Ha-Kol

January 1st, 2018 by

The Brotherhood will be turning 90 years old this year! It is incredible to imagine the history, support and volunteerism that has been going on at CEEBJ. It has been an honor to be part of this organization, but we are not stopping at 90 years. The future is bright for the Brotherhood and we need your help to continue the legacy. As we continue to produce our great annual programs and creating new ones, we are looking for more active members. We are starting to see new faces at our monthly meetings and our events. If you are enjoying these events and want to volunteer a bit of your time, let us know. During all of our events we will be turning this birthday into a year-long celebration.

As we do every December, the Women of Emanu-EL and the Brotherhood together, sponsored the Staff Appreciation Luncheon. This was our opportunity to say “thank you” to all of the CEEBJ staff for helping make sure our congregation runs smoothly.

I wanted to bring this to your attention so the next time you are at CEEBJ, take a moment to look around and see some of things happening and that we may be taking for granted. Please be sure to stop and thank our staff for being dedicated to their jobs, and, from the Brotherhood and the congregation, we say “thank you” to the entire staff of CEEBJ for all that you do.

As always, we look forward to seeing you at our monthly Brotherhood meeting the first Thursday of the month at 6 pm for dinner and good discussion. Remember, this is open to all members of the Brotherhood or those who are interested in learning more about the Brotherhood.

Garrett Butenhoff
