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.
