Christmas Mitzvah Project, December 25

The Christmas Mitzvah Project has been a tradition in the local Jewish community for over 20 years. On December 25, volunteers will prepare meals, collect gifts, answer phone calls, facilitate activities, and staff gift shops at local non-profits. No special skills required!

If you are registering friends or family members in addition to yourself, you will need personal and contact information for each registrant. There are specific requirements for each host site, including age minimums and flu shots.

If your site requires an orientation, you will receive details in early December.

There are family sites available so people of all ages may participate. Please choose the location and activity that makes the most sense for your family, or contact Tara Saltzman to coordinate with a CBE group. Thank you for your participation!

Stained Glass Window Unveiling, January 9

On Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 7:00 PM, our third stained glass window will be presented.  This magnificent piece was designed from ideas and sketches developed by the 7th grade class of CBE last year.  On January 9, come join the presentation of this work by Linda Elliott.  Linda, Rich Levine, and Rabbi Arnold will discuss the process of the creation of these pieces, the importance of ritual art within a religious community space, and the hidden meanings contained within each of the three windows.

February 16, 7:30PM

Back by popular demand, CBE will once again celebrate Shabbat with the rhythms of reggae. Led by Rabbi Jamie with many musicians and singers, this is one evening not to be missed!

Join us on Friday, January 19 at 7:30PM for a participatory Shabbat celebration featuring music in the uplifting Gospel style led by Rabbi Jamie and Havurat Shirah, the CBE Singers.  Let the spirit move you. Bring your neighbors and friends.
