This past Shabbat we had a special service at CBI, during which we offered a blessing for those who have been members of CBI for thirty years or more. (In many cases, much more!)
It was a joy to lead davenen with so many dear souls in the room, and afterwards to enjoy a bagel brunch and an opportunity to look at old CBI photos and to hear some stories about what it was like here 10, 20, 30 and more years ago.
Of course, there were some folks who weren’t able to join us — so we recorded the service, and are making it available online as a podcast. (See What is a podcast? — in a nutshell, a podcast is like a homemade radio show, available online, for free, which you can listen to anytime.)
This mp3 file is lightly edited (I’ve removed the announcements from the end of the service, and some chit-chat before the service) but otherwise, this is Shabbat morning services from Shabbat Noach, October 20, 2012, including the special aliyah and blessing for 30+ Year Members.
