Congregation Mishkan Israel Annual Meeting
June 7 – 7:00 p.m.
The Congregation’s Annual Meeting is Friday, June 7 at 7:00 p.m. The Rabbi, President and Treasurer will report on the past year and the new Board will be elected.We invite our congregational family to come together for a potluck dinner at 7:00 p.m. during the Meeting. One of the things that has always made this dinner extra special is that it is potluck and reflects the diversity and communal sense of our CMI family. We encourage everyone to bring a side or salad to share. Shabbat Services will precede the meeting at 6:00 p.m. If you are not able to attend, please be sure to complete and return a proxy form, which you will be receiving via mail. All members age 15 and older are eligible to vote (sign a proxy).
