High Holidays 2019 (5780)

From the beginning of Selichot (Sept 21st, 9pm) until the end of Simchat Torah (late morning on October 22nd), this is your CBI High Holiday guide. In this corner of the website, you'll find just about everything you need to know about celebrating Rosh HaShannah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah with the CBI community.   

Not a CBI member?

We hope you'll join us for part or (hopefully) all of the  holiday season. All are welcome.  Please contact us ahead of time to let us know which days you plan to attend and how many people will be with you. We're a pretty iunformal  bunch but we do like to welcome everyone. So please call  Lee in the office (828-2528660)d or sent her a quick email (admin@bethisraelnc.org)  and let her know you'll be  sharing this wonderful time with us. 

Flowers for the Bimah

 If you would be willing to sponsor or donate a flower arrangement for the bimah during the High Holidays, please contact the CBI office at 252-8660 or admin@bethisraelnc.org.  Your donation can be dedicated in honor, in memory, or in appreciation of someone, and your gift will be recognized in the Ha’Shofar monthly bulletin.

Join the Sukkah Team!

Do you love Sukkot? CBI is seeking a few enthusiastic individuals to help set up our Sukkah before the start of the  holiday, and to take it down afterwards. Our modular Sukkah is easy to erect. It must be ready for use with walls and roofing by Sunday, October 12, and can be dismantled any time after Wednesday, October 23. Please contact Eva at ritual@bethisraelnc.org or Lee at admin@bethisraelnc.org if you'd like to be part of this fun project.
