Kol Nidre 2022

The CSOI Board of Directors extends to each of you our warmest wishes for a

Happy, Healthy and Sweet New Year.


Another year has passed, and we still work to recover from a disease that has changed both our lives and the world around us.  Added to that have been the many changes that have affected our community directly.


Supporting our Kol Nidre Appeal will ensure CSOI's ability to actively participate in community events and services.  Our synagogue needs your fiscal support to remain financially secure.  We look forward to seeing you during the Yamim HaNoraim and in the year to come, as we work to rebuild and reinvigorate our wonderful community.


Daf Yomi at Sons of Israel

Our Daf Yomi group, the daily study of Talmud, got a shout-out from Rav Eli Stefansky at the Mercaz Daf Yomi in Bet Shemesh. A visitor to our community was so impressed that he took a video and sent it to Rav Eli, who played it before the next day's lesson.

Cheers to 40 Years!

Thanks to everyone that joined our dinner party and raffle celebrating our wonderful office manager, April Daugherty!
