Tuesdays with Morim: Diet, nutrition and lifelong health with Susie Speer, November 1

Tuesday, November 1, 7PM

Explore myths and truths about food & nutrition. This discussion is not about restrictive diets or weight loss, rather, it is about maximizing health as we age.

Susie has started a second career as a registered dietitian, having earned a B.S. Nutrition and completed a 9-month dietetic internship. She has a passion for using lifestyle to both prevent disease and improve quality of life and enjoys talking with others about ideas to meet their specific needs.


Organ Donation Panel Discussion, November 6

November 6, 1PM

Every year, organ, eye and tissue transplants provide lifesaving and healing hope to tens of thousands of people suffering from disease, injury, trauma or blindness. Organ donation has touched lives within the CBE community; the need can touch any one of us at any time.

At this time of renewal, new beginnings, and thanksgiving, CBE is hosting an expert and experienced panel which will discuss the different opportunities to “get on the lists” as a potential marrow donor and organ/tissue donor. Hear from a fellow CBE member what is involved in being a marrow donor and watch a short video of a young brother and sister, donor and recipient, both of which will warm your heart and may inspire you to “get on the list”. Learn the Jewish perspective on organ donation, hear the inspiring stories of organ donors and recipients, and learn how easy it is to become an organ and tissue donor. Come get your questions answered by those who already have walked the walk.

Registering as an organ and tissue donor is a gift of hope and life to those in need.

We say L’Chaim…let’s mean it!
