CSK would like to recognize outstanding members of our kehillah through a new Volunteer Recognition Program, Mitnadev. This program is designed for our chaverim to recognize a member who has led a project that has had a significant impact on the synagogue or a member who has gone above and beyond expectations for CSK. The Mitnadev Committee will review all nominees. Selected honorees will be notified of their recognition and interviewed by a Mitnadev committee member. The honoree will be recognized via our CSK Social Media.

*Whosoever is of a willing heart (nadiv libo) -- Because the heart prompts one to generosity, that person is called ‘one who is prompted to generosity by the heart’.” Exodus 35:5

Meet our Mitnadev Recipient!

Barbara Maryn


The newest recipient of the Mitnadev Award for outstanding volunteer service to CSK is Barbara Maryn. 

Barbara has been a member of CSK since 2006 with her husband, Nat z’’l, of blessed memory.

She started offering to volunteer from the beginning of her membership but has become an active volunteer, especially in the past 4 years.

Some of you may know her as our "bagel volunteer" but she is so much more! Not only does Barbara go out of her way to pick up and deliver the bagels for Kiddush every week, but she also volunteers at CSK on a regualar basis!

When we need envelopes stuffed, siddur bookplates secured, inventory counted, or any extra help in the office or the kitchen, we can always count on Barbara!

She also volunteers for the Palm Beach Sheriff's Office as a dispatcher through emergency radio, sets up disaster relief, and is currently a rover for PBSO and patrols multiple areas and neighborhoods – including CSK (and she makes sure that the other rovers also patrol CSK!). She worked for The Red Cross and taught CPR for the Heart Association (she is a nurse by trade).  

               " It makes me feel good when I can do something to help somebody else! I feel so much gratitude for everything – even though I have gone through tough times, I  always feel very grateful."

Barbara loves the Jewish holidays and rituals - especially the cooking!  And she loves being an active member of CSK!
