We found community and connection

San Luis Obispo

Garry O. Youngman

My wife and I recently moved to SLO with our children. We came from a large eastern city where we were actively engaged in synagogue life. On our first visit to Congregation Beth David here in SLO, we were welcomed warmly and lovingly invited into the community. CBD offers us and our children engaging social opportunities, stimulating intellectual and education programming, and deep spiritual connection. That sense of connection extends will beyond the synagogue walls into the larger community of SLO.

It’s unfortunate that Lauren Bandari didn’t find the same engagement and connection at CBD (“A mitzvah with movies,” Jan. 3). I wonder why? We pray she finds it somewhere.
