The Life Cycle Blog

Welcome Susan Schaibly as our new Life Cycle Events Coordinator!

Susan Schaibly is a long-time member of Congregation Har Shalom and first attended services here as a graduate student in 1994. The Schaibly family has since celebrated many life cycle events in the synagogue, including a baby naming and two b'nai mitzvot.

As a volunteer, Susan served on the Ritual and Education Committees, taught Torah Study, and led seders, holiday celebrations, and innovative, educational Shabbat services. She has officiated at several b’nai mitzvah celebrations and has tutored many students over the years. From 2006-2011 Susan was our Religious School director before taking a five-year detour into corporate cubicle land. She is thrilled to be back at Har Shalom.

Susan is deeply grateful for the opportunity to help families make their Jewish life cycle events memorable, glitch-free, and imbued with the sacred sensibility of the Jewish tradition. She is organized, efficient, and never misses a deadline.

Susan is passionate about Judaism, the Boston Red Sox, Dunkin Donuts iced coffee, and live music. During the summer you can often find her camping with friends next to the Poudre River and boogie-ing at The Mishawaka Inn. She blogs about life, Judaism, and everything at
