Another Way to CBI

CBI isn't confined to a building, it's wherever (and however) we come together to connect, meet, share and learn. Sometimes that's at 229 Murdock Ave. or Shabbatluck in someone's home and other times it's from the comfort of your couch in your jammies. Welcome to the CBI Virtual Community, a place to come together when we can't actually get together. 

From online meetings and classes to virtual programs and services, when you can't be with the your CBI family, we'll come to you...wherever you are. Pick an online event, class or program and click on the link when it's time to join. It's that simple. 

Kabbalat Shabbat On-line: Fridays 6:00 pm

Beginning Friday, March 27, we will begin holding Kabbalat Shabbat services via Zoom.  A rotation of folks will lead the service, including Josefa, who will lead Family Shabbat on the second Friday of each month. As long as at least 10 adults log in, we’ll be able to say Kaddish, so please consider attending, even if you’re not a Friday night regular.

Friday Noon Study Group: Every Friday, Noon - 1pm

Now in it's 18th year, the Friday Noon Study Group brings together folks from a broad spectrum to discuss classic and contemporary texts from a modern Jewish perspective.
