Join us as we mark the 30th anniversary of the struggle of Women of the Wall (Nashot Hakotel) to pray out loud as women in the women’s section of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Women of the Wall gather every Rosh Hodesh (New Moon) and their efforts to conduct joyful prayer continue to be thwarted, even though the Israeli courts have ruled in their favor for the right to do so. Their actions are part of the greater quest for religious pluralism and equality, and recognition of the non-Orthodox branches of Judaism in Israel.
Jewish communities throughout the world are joining in solidarity with Women of the Wall this Shabbat, which coincides with International Women’s Day. Here at CBI, our Shabbat morning service will be women-led, with a special D’var Torah by Julie Sherman.

Fast of the Firstborn (Hebrew: תענית בכורות, Ta’anit B’khorot or תענית בכורים, Ta’anit B’khorim); is a unique fast day in Judaism which usually falls on the day before Passover. Usually, the fast is broken at a siyum celebration (typically made at the conclusion of the morning services), which, according to prevailing custom, creates an atmosphere of rejoicing that overrides the requirement to continue the fast. Unlike most Jewish fast days, only firstborns are required to fast on the Fast of the Firstborn.
Ta’anit Bechorot begins at dawn on Fri, 19 April 2019.
At 11:00am congregants are invited to join us at the fire pit behind CBI to burn the last bits of chametz they may have.
