Congregation Beth Evergreen invites you to become a part of our creative, inclusive and easy-going Jewish community. Set among the pines overlooking Elk Meadow in Evergreen, Colorado, Beth Evergreen is considered to be a home-away-from-home to nearly 200 families from all ends of the spiritual spectrum.
Affiliated with the growing Reconstructionist movement our community celebrates life, education, friendship and Jewish culture through its unique classes, innovative services and nurturing life-cycle events. So whether you like to daven, dine, pray or play, there’s always something for you at Beth Evergreen. Please look through our website to find out more, or call (303) 670-4294, ext. 1, for more information.
I am writing to invite you to a musical event of making music together to celebrate with and say a fond farewell with blessings to our Neshama Mousseau, who after more than decade with CBE is moving to Georgia in August.
As you may know neshama LOVES drum circles...and we love her.
So join us.
Mark your calendar now for Thursday August 13, 2015 at 7 PM at CBE. Bring your drum, instruments, favorite song lyrics, stories and words of tribute and thanks to Neshama, and perhaps some food and drink to share.
AND SPREAD THE WORD. All are invited, whether they are music makers or not.

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.
