Hanukkah Pop-up Store at CBI

Hanukkah Pop-Up

Due to Covid and a closed Gift Shop, we had to come up with a way for our community to safely shop for Hanukkah.  Our solution? CBI’s Hanukkah Pop-Up!

Here is how it will work. You will have SEVERAL OPTIONS:

  1. Call Carol Samsky, 828-676-0765, and order/charge items over the phone. Arrange for pick-up at synagogue at a mutually agreed upon time.
  2. There will be limited hours that our Pop-Up Shop will be open as Hanukkah approaches. Tentative dates and times include:

Friday, Nov. 20th – 11am to 2pm

Monday, Nov.30th – 4 pm to 6pm

Friday, Dec. 4th – 11am to 2pm

Monday, Dec.7th – 4pm to 6pm

(Note:  Weekly E-Blast will update/confirm Pop-Up’s hours)

  1. If the first two options don’t work for you, call CBI and speak directly to Lee or Rochelle to see if they are available and it is a convenient time for them to sell from the Pop-up Store.
