Bean of Affliction: Chocolate, Child Labor & Choosing Fair Trade
As we celebrate the gift of freedom with a Passover feast, we can support the liberation of all people today by choosing to purchase through fair trade companies.
In response to the condition of modern slavery, especially the thousands of children working in cocoa fields for the production of chocolate, the religious school has elected to work through Fair Trade Judaica this year to offer Passover chocolate treats. Always organic, always small-farmer grown, certified kashrut.
We are each endowed with "a strong hand and outstretched arms." Let us use them to extend freedom to others. Order by April 10 to arrive in time for Passover.
Let's take advantage of all the great talent we have at CBE and learn from each other! For adult education in 2015-16, we will meet from 7 to 8:30 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month - featuring a member of the congregation as guest speaker. Share your knowledge and skills - Torah, Talmud, Israel, ethics, meditation, yoga, music, veterans, estate planning...you name it!

Encountering the Religious Other, Russ Arnold
This session will be an opportunity to learn some skills for dialogue with others whose religious experience and commitments differ from yours, as well as to ask questions and learn more about a variety of religious traditions/practices/communities.
Russ Arnold is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Regis University in Denver. He teaches interfaith studies and biblical studies with particular focus on the ways people and communities of different religious and nonreligious traditions interact with each other.
Congregation Beth Evergreen, in conjunction with The Sanctuary, Foothills Center for Spiritual Living, and Jefferson Unitarian Church, presents an 11-class book study on Judaism's Ten Best Ideas by Arnold Green. This study lasts until the end of July, and six of the classes will include children's classes. Most classes will be 9-10AM on Saturday mornings; click here to see the class schedule for more detail.
Sugested donation for the entire series (6+ classes) is $100 per household; suggested donation for an individual class is $25 per household or $10 per individual. Members of Mazel Tot will receive a large discount. No one will be turned away for inability to pay.
Simple Steps to Benefiting the Religious School read more…
Our first 8 checks have arrived and we received $2,473!
Thank you to everyone who is participating!
Please keep up the momentum (as we only qualify for these dividends in months that $5k or more are 'loaded' onto gift cards.)
We have been receiving a ton of questions about how to obtain/use the King Sooper’s gift cards to benefit the CBE Religious School. Hopefully this FAQ will help!
1. Obtain a pre-loaded gift card from the CBE office (it comes with $2.50 already on it).
2. Go to King Soopers to shop!
Before ringing up your groceries 'load' more $money onto your gift card with cash or your credit card. This can either be done at customer service or right at the check-out stand. NOTE: This must be done before you start ringing up your items.
3. Use your gift card to buy groceries or at their Loaf 'n Jug gas stations.
NOTE: you will still get 'points' and 'miles' when you participate.
