As summer comes to a close and the school year is upon us, it’s a time for both goodbyes and new beginnings. We are excited for the return of in-person learning and holiday celebrations at the religious school. There are some big changes to report relating to the religious school and to the Education Committee. First, Sheri Pinsonneault has stepped down as chair of the committee. We would like to thank Sheri for her hard work and dedication both to the committee and to the religious school over the past few years - her leadership has been appreciated! Randi Murray has also stepped away from the committee, and we thank her for her time and efforts over the many years she participated.

You will read in this newsletter that our longtime Education Director Tara Saltzman will be stepping down in the coming months. While we’ve known for some time that this was coming, it doesn’t change our immense respect and gratitude for all of Tara’s leadership, joy, sense of humor, musicality and love for CBE’s students and families. She plans to continue being an active part of CBE, but the religious school program will miss her incredibly. Now, the Ed Committee is tasked with filling her enormous shoes. We will begin accepting applications for the part-time position immediately. Anyone interested in applying should email a resume and cover letter to the email below, Attn: Education Director Position.

The Education Committee is charged with supporting the Education Director in various ways, including: assisting with holidays and events, helping with fundraising efforts, developing new youth and family programs, and ensuring that the religious school runs smoothly. I have recently stepped in to replace Sheri as the committee chair, and I’d like to invite any members who might be interested in joining the Education Committee to please reach out to me. 

Here’s to new beginnings, and to a very Happy New (school) Year ahead!
