Purim 2021

Purim Mitzvah Opportunity!

CBI’s Social Action Committee recently arranged to provide dinners for 65 homeless individuals housed at the Red Roof Inn in West Asheville. In doing so, we are fulfilling the mitzvah of offering food to the poor (Matanot L’evyonim), one of the primary mitzvot of Purim. If you would like to participate, please donate directly to CBI online here or mail your check to the synagogue office. Please note ‘’Red Roof Inn’’ in the memo line. Thank you for your generosity.
