CNS 2020 Gala and Auction – Postponed

We are writing today with a heavy heart to share CNS has decided to postpone the 2020 Gala & Auction including any virtual or online event.

The unpredictable nature of this pandemic and where our community and world will find ourselves in the coming weeks has led the Auction Committee, with the support of the CNS Board and of Directors and dedicated CNS staff to this decision. A date to reschedule this event will be considered as events evolve.

We would like to thanks our generous sponsors that have extended their continued support to our ongoing operations. The funds raised from the Auction go directly towards a full range of spiritual, educational, and social outreach programs that embody our commitment to Tikkun Olam which in these challenging days is more important than ever.

Many of you have asked how you can help. In the coming days you will receive a link to the virtual premiere of the 2020 Mitzah Moment video by our talented Cantor Bitton and Ken Klein, Klein Films. We hope it inspires you to “to take a sad song and make it better, remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better”


Thank you to our Auction Team
Our deepest thanks to the team led by auction co-chairs Doug Blauer and Glen Coblens, and the dedicated and talented host committee.

Thanks to our generous sponsors!
