more info coming soon!


8th Grade

8th graders at CBI focus on Social Justice first semester, diving into a number of “Hot Topics” surrounding the day-to-day life of our teens. Some topics include: Sports, Social Media, Food, Body Image, and Politics. The holocaust is covered second semester, usually leading up to a student-led Holocaust Remembrance ceremony created by the class.

9th Grade 
with Rabbi Levy

9th graders study Comparative Judaism and Religions. We will discuss Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, and Reconstructionist Judaism during the first semester. Second semester, we will look at other religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism. This will be an exciting class with occasional guest speakers and/or field trips!

10th Grade (Confirmation) 
with Rabbi Folberg

Students learn about so many interesting things in Confirmation: ideas about God, Jewish teachings about life after death, what it’s like to be part of a minority group in a majority Christian culture, how Jewish practice can help us stay grounded and in touch with our own hearts and souls in a crazy world that moves too quickly… not to mention all the wonderful, unexpected tangents that we explore as they come up!
