Shabbat on the Lake is CABI’s annual community retreat for all ages: singles, couples, families, tots & teens, young adults, older adults & the young at heart! From Friday evening through Sunday midday we’ll celebrate both Shabbat and our Jewish kehillah (community) through shared prayers, songs, art projects, meals, walks, talks and lots more.

Sonia Siegel Vexler
has served on the North American Board for the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ). She has facilitated numerous retreats and conference sessions focusing on outreach and leadership skills. We look forward to Sonia’s presentations about Jewish leadership.

Paul Vexler is a Seattle sculptor known for his large scale, suspended installations. You may have seen his “Ribbons” exhibition last year at the Boise Art Museum. A master of the dynamics of wood, Paul strives to define forms and volumes with as little material as possible, while providing just the right strength and pliability to give the sculpture a sense of movement and play. Paul will lead two sessions for us.

Sonia and Paul have two grown daughters and four delightful grandchildren, and are related as aunt and uncle to our very own Nemmie Stieha.
