Rabbi Sally Finestone coming to CHS

We are pleased to announce that Rabbi Sally Finestone will join us again for Shabbat the weekend of October 27.  You may recall that she visited us in April, and that she is relocating to Fort Collins later in 2018 to be close to her son who recently moved here.  Rabbi Finestone is the founding rabbi and education director of Congregation Or Atid in Wayland, Massachusetts. Stay tuned to Happenings for details.

Library News

The online Library catalog returns! Many, many thanks to Shelly Hedger and Heather Regan for their time and efforts in getting the Library catalog in sync with Shul Cloud. It is a wonderful and easy-to-use interface which allows you to search by keyword, title, author, or subject. Once you find your book, click on "more details" for the call number and the circulation availability. From the search page you can also create your own "book bin" and see all the new items recently entered into the catalog.
