Older siblings are always welcome to participate!


Tot Shabbat – 2nd & 4th Saturdays, 9:00 a.m. (view program guide for exact dates)

Rabbi Folberg, Rabbi Levy, and Cantorial Soloist Sarah Avner share the leading of our engaging Tot Shabbat services. This service, designed for children under 5, is filled with songs, stories, and sometimes even dancing. Following the service, we offer a craft project and play time with other kids. 

PJ Havdalah– Select Saturdays, 5:00-6:00 p.m.(view program guide for dates)

Join CBI and introduce Havdalah to our smallest worshipers in a fun atmosphere. One of our clergy team will be leading this program. Wear your pajamas and join us in the cdc@cbi living room for a picnic dinner (bring your own!), story, music, and short activity. We’ll end with a short Havdalah service to say goodbye to Shabbat.
