CBI has a long history of social activism and g’milut chasadim (acts of loving kindness). Our Social Action Committee is involved in a wide variety of local and national issues; championing economic, social and racial justice. Inside the CBI community, the Chesed Group coordinates the talents and energies of the congregation in order to care for fellow congregants in need. On behalf of the entire Asheville Jewish community, the CBI Chevra Kaddisha (holy society) performs the holy mitzvah of caring for and preparing someone who has died.
