Building Inclusive Community

Happy Secular New Year!

2018 is now a thing of the past, but the aftermath of 2018’s weather disasters and fires in California remain to remind us of nature’s fury and human suffering. We may not be able to overcome the fury, but we can assuage the human suffering through volunteerism and tzedakah. Let us start 2019 with a vision of what we can do to help make things better.

For example, the American Red Cross through its Disaster Cycle Services program provides training and opportunities for volunteers to respond to disasters. Doctors Without Borders is a not for profit group that provides, “Medical aid where it’s needed most — independent, neutral, impartial.” NECHAMA – Jewish Response to Disaster, is a 501(c)(3) volunteer organization providing clean-up and recovery assistance to homes and businesses affected by natural disaster. Jewish World Service provides immediate humanitarian aid after a disaster. Through the magic of Google, you can find many opportunities to volunteer or to offer tzedakah for disaster relief.

SPORTS DINNER 2018

Our SPORTS DINNER was a hit. We were fortunate to have as our guest speaker St. Louis native and Post-Dispatch sports writer, Benjamin Hochman. Hochman spoke about his experiences with the Cardinals and his new book “ST. LOUIS CARDINALS, THE BIG 50,” meaning the all-time top 50 players in Cardinals history. The 70-plus attendees enjoyed a scrumptious spaghetti dinner with all the traditional trappings, followed by drawings for great Cardinals and other baseball memorabilia prizes.

Our experience with 2018’s Sports Dinner has guided the Men’s Club to include in the future babysitting and entertainment for the younger set while parents and older kids can enjoy the dinner and presentation.

I was beginning to fear that cooler weather would never arrive. But it’s here at last — what a relief for those of us who can’t tolerate the heat. Before moving on to November and December activities, I’d like to express the Men’s Club’s appreciation for the tremendous support for our annual Steak and Scotch in the Sukkah. More than 70 Kol Rinah members and friends enjoyed their choice of 12-ounce rib steak or salmon or grilled stuffed portobello mushroom, along with a giant baked potato and crisp salad. And of course there was the Scotch tasting following dinner.

However, before we could dine in the Sukkah, we had to build it. Pictures (on the back page) show the Men’s Club Sukkah Crew as they built it in 90-degree weather.

We are truly excited to bring back our SPORTS DINNER, November 18 at 6:30 p.m. We are fortunate to have as our guest speaker St. Louis native, Benjamin Hochman. Hochman, a graduate of the University of Missouri School of Journalism, is a sports columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Hochman has received six national honors from the Associated Press Sports Editors, the “APSEs,” are considered the “Oscars” of sports writing. He will talk about his experiences with the Cardinals and his new Book “ST. LOUIS CARDINALS, THE BIG 50.”

Tickets include dinner, Q&A, raffles. You can make your reservation by going to Kol Rinah’s home page (kolrinahstl.org), scroll down to the Sports Dinner poster and click on the poster. You will be taken to the page for making reservations.
