Online Milk & Honey Hour @ CBI
Apr 18 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Online Milk & Honey Hour @ CBI | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

CBI’s Milk & Honey Hour brings together young Jewish families to schmooze and acclimate their little ones (newborn to 4 yrs) to their spiritual home away from home. Once a month on the third Saturday of the month, we meet online for an hour-long Jewish experience designed to expose children to the sights, sounds and smells of Judaism.

Join us for singing with Gabby Feinstein. She’ll teach Shabbat songs, nigguns (wordless melodies), Hebrew  lullabies and Jewish holiday tunes you can continue singing to your kids at home. While the youngest absorb the rhythms and melodies, the older toddlers are encouraged to play along on drums and tambourines.

All the while, the kids are exposed to the in the background sounds and melodies of the Shabbat service coming from the sanctuary. The entire hour-long experience is designed to imprint positive Jewish memories that will last a lifetime. This program is designed for any Jewish family with kids under the age of four. You need not be a member of CBI to participate – all are welcome.

Online Torah on Tap @ Archetype Brewing
Apr 26 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
With so much of CBI’s programming unavoidably cancelled, we’re working hard to find ways we can support each other as a community when we can’t be together in person.

Please join me this Sunday, April 26, at 4:00pm, when we will be holding Torah on Tap via Zoom.

A link to the online discussion group is below.  Zoom is easy to use and will let us see and hear each other as we speak.  If you haven’t already downloaded Zoom to your computer or phone, you must do so before joining the meeting on Sunday at 4:00pm.  You only need to download Zoom once, after that you simply log in, always using the same Meeting ID: 328 336 9562.  Easy instructions are below this message.

This is a temporary measure to keep us all connected while we can’t be together physically.

Unless you’ve been out of the country for the last several weeks, you probably know that there’s some pretty important proceedings taking place in our nation’s capitol. In the 230-year history of the American presidency, only two sitting presidents have been impeached. President Trump may well be the third. The historicity of the proceedings, however, pale in comparison to real underlying battle. This is not just an investigation to determine whether impeachable offenses occurred; it is a tug war between strength and morality, and it’s as old as humanity itself.

Join us this Sunday as we look at the dynamics of accountability from a Jewish perspective. More specifically, we will consider one very particular confrontation involving Rabbi Shimon ben Shetach and King Yannai.

“Why is a king of Israel “not judged” [Mishnah Sanhedrin 2:1]? Because of what once happened.” 

Intrigued? Wait until you see how many parallels there are between this 2,100-year-old Talmudic tale and what is happening now in our country. To see how the story unfolds and to unlock the universal lessons it holds, join us this Sunday at Archetype Brewing (the former Habitat Tavern, 174 Broadway St., Asheville). Rabbi Justin will help us understand this epic power struggle between the executive and legislative branches of ancient Israel.

This program is free and open to all. Differing opinions are not only welcomed but encouraged. Non-alcoholic beverages are available, there is ample parking in the Moog Music parking lot off Bordeau Pl.

Looking forward to seeing you there!!

Join us on the last Sunday of the month online for a refreshing and often provocative discussion. 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?

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.

See you there!
