Learn, Laugh and Linger With Esteemed Scholar in Residence Rabbi Rami Shapiro

Join us for a once in a decade opportunity to experience the wisdom, joy, and humor of Rabbi Rami Shapiro.  Rabbi Rami joins CBE for a weekend of diverse and welcoming activities including a Shabbat dinner and service with Rabbi Jamie, family Shabbat service, and Shabbat morning workshop. The weekend will be concluded with a special fundraising dinner hosted by Alan and Cheri Rubin.   Rabbi Rami is a skilled and passionate teacher, rabbi, and writer who engages congregants with new (and old) ways of understanding Judaism, our history, our traditions and our future.  You do not want to miss this chance to experience all that he has to offer.  Come to all the events, or pick your favorite.  Just come!

Rabbi Rami writes: “A Jew is defined by her or his commitment to Judaism (however understood) rather than blood. Our challenge is to teach our children to invent the future and not preserve a frozen and romanticized past. If we are not about tomorrow we will find that we have none.”
