At CBI, financial support is an expression of gratitude for the value we receive, not a requirement for membership. 

CBI is primarily supported through voluntary gifts of the heart. They come in all sizes - and for all the right reasons. If you have found value here- whether during a service, class, program or in an interaction - please consider taking advantage of the many ways you can help.

CBI's Capital Campaign (going on now) is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to contribute to the growing vision of our community. In addition to much needed repairs and upgrades to our building, this campaign - which has already raised over $1 million - will help to deepen the sense of community that makes CBI unique. Learn more about the CBI "Giving and Growing Together" Capital Campaign, here.  

Try Our Dip Jar

As you know, most of our programs are FREE and open to all. The Dip Jar - which is our version of an "impulse buy" - is located on the table in the foyer (where the kippot are). It is an easy and quick way to make a $5 contribution to Beth Israel. Just insert your credit or debit card and then remove it. If you have enjoyed a program or were blown away by what your child learned during a Family Ed program, please consider using the dip jar. (Just not on Shabbat, please.)

Everybody's got to eat, right?

Ingles cards are a no-cost fundraiser for Beth Israel. Each month CBI members and friends buy $14,000 worth of Ingles gift cards to help raise $700 for Beth Israel – over $8,000 annually. Ingles gift cards can be used at any Ingles store for groceries, pharmacy items and gasoline. Sign up now to receive your Ingles cards automatically each month. The office also keeps an inventory of Ingles cards for immediate purchase. Contact the CBI office to get more information and/or to participate at 252-8660 or
