It’s time to say welcome back from summer diversions and pursuits. Our work in the Social Action Committee continues! Over the last couple of months we planned our strategy for action concerning Senior Health Care. The committee is now in what we call the “research phase” to focus in on a specific policy affecting senior health care in need of change or support. In order to become educated on this, we identify experts and advocates in the field and the public officials responsible for that area. We then meet with these people to discuss the issue and get the information needed to make decisions about change. All interested CBS members and friends are invited and encouraged to become a part of this process.

Our guest for the November 8, 2012 (second Thursday each month) research meeting at 7:00 pm at Congregation Beth Shalom will be Irene Jenkins, the Elder Abuse Committee Chair of the National Council of Jewish Women (NCWJ).
