Volunteerism and final exams do not usually go hand in hand but a number of Deerfield High School students found time to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., on the eve of those very important tests.

Those students were among more than 400 people ranging in age from very young children to senior citizens participating in a day of service to honor King’s legacy by volunteering at both Deerfield’s Village Hall and Congregation B’nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim (BJBE) Monday.

“You can budget your time so you can take two hours off so you can give back,” said Deerfield High School senior Danny Goldberg, as he helped at BJBE to make pads for the homeless to sleep on in shelters. “We can spend a few hours helping people like he gave his life to do.”

A Letter from Cantor Ross Wolman to the congregation

Cantor Ross Wolman
November 19, 2014 – 26 Cheshvan 5775

I have spent an incredible 3 ½ years at BJBE and each day has been a gift. On Monday, it was with mixed feelings that I informed our presidents and senior staff of my decision to exercise an option in my contract to enter ACC placement in search of another position, beginning July 1, 2015. Until that time I will continue to serve this community with a full heart.
