Torah on Tap
Mar 31 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Torah on Tap

Join us on the last Sunday of the month at Habitat Tavern and Commons for a refreshing and often provocative discussion over a pint (or two) of great brew. Each month, we take on a new topic – often ripped from the headlines of today’s news. We spend the first 45 minutes wrapping our arms around it, defining it, dissecting and analyzing it from various viewpoints. Then we spend the rest of the time discussing it from Judaism’s point of view.

  • What’s Judaism’s take on universal healthcare?
  • Would Moses walk the streets of Chicago today packing heat?
  • Is it okay to punch a white supremacist?
  • Developing a practice of gratitude
  • Gender identity and Juadaism

Torah on Tap gives us a chance to learn, vent, share and, most of all, understand what 4,000 years of cultural development, debate and dialogue has to say about some of the issues that confront us today. Torah on Tap is free and open to all. Varying viewpoints are not only welcome, but encouraged.

CBI Ribbon Cutting & Rededication
Apr 7 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Dear CBI members,

Many of you have already experienced Shabbat in the beauty of our newly reopened building.  To those of you who have not been in our rejuvenated synagogue, you have something to look forward to.

Our official reopening will be on April 7th, 2019. Our Ribbon Cutting and Building Rededication Ceremony will be held from 3-5pm. We will simultaneously celebrate our recent Capital Campaign renovations, our fiftieth year in our Murdock building, and our 120th year as a congregation. I look forward to seeing everyone at this free event which will include the wider Jewish community and friends of the synagogue.

Our rededication will include the distribution of a commemorative 120th anniversary tribute book. The book will memorialize our congregation through the years and will include a special section featuring our recent Capital Campaign. These 8 ½ x 11 inch full color books will be keepsakes, and there will be a book reserved for each congregational member and donor to the capital campaign.

For more information about the tribute book or the April 7th event, please contact Mike Weizman at msweizman@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support of CBI. Mazel Tov to all of us.

Michael Weizman

Capital Campaign and Development Committee Chair
