It was an exciting weekend June 26-27 when Congregation Beth Shalom (CBS) in Arlington, dedicated its new sanctuary. I’m told by Ben Weiger, the event was a huge success!
Barry Goldfarb led the congregation for services Friday evening and delivered a special reading that inspired all that attended. Janet Aaronson and Ruth Friedman baked delicious desserts for the Oneg. Debra Kaplan’s play was a great hit with an encore performance on Saturday night. Cantor Sheri Allen led the congregation in prayer for Saturday morning services and delivered an inspiring dedication D’var Torah. The Kiddush luncheon was catered by contributions from members of the congregation, and there was plenty of food for all.
After a restful afternoon, 70 people returned to CBS for the Saturday evening festivities. Kaplan’s play got more laughs and applause. Judi Lecoq sang a beautiful song after congregants begged her to sing for them during intermission.
The hit of the night was the CBS rendition of the “Not So Newlywed Game.” Debra and Henry Kaplan took home the grand prize! Kudos to Brian and Klila Caplan, Judi and Philippe Lecoq, and Ben and Fran Weiger, for being such great contestants. But, really a special prize (or Emmy) was needed for Randy San Antonio for being the cutest, funniest, and best host of the evening. Last but not least, Chanel and Davina Sassoon deserve special recognition for being the greatest Game Show hostess’ ever!
Thanks to everyone who attended the weekend events and supported Congregation Beth Shalom!
