Always @ CBI

Learning
At CBI, we have learning for all ages – from religious school for our youth, post bnei mitzvah education, basic Judaism classes and Adult Education.
 


Caring Community
We have a caring community that helps provide support to our community in their times of need and joy.
     
 


Environmental Action

Congregation Beth Israel installed solar panels on the roof of the Shirley Barish Learning Center as part of our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship.  We were also the first organization to go through the PACE process which gave us an affordable way to improve our facility’s energy efficiency. And our grounds have been recognized as an Urban Wildlife Habitat from the National Wildlife Foundation.

Social Action
Our community is actively involved with fulfilling the mitzvah of tikkun olam, repairing the world, by working with the food bank, helping resettle refugees, and advocating for human rights.                          


Youth Groups
Combined social, educational, religious and social action programs to create opportunities for the synagogue’s children to create lasting friendships.
