     Homeless Justice 

“Share your bread with the hungry, and take the wretched poor into your home; when you see the naked, clothe him and do not ignore your own kin” – Isaiah 58:7.
 

As Jews, we are commanded to help the most vulnerable among us. At CBI, we know how important it is to uphold this value, to give tzedakah, to provide resources for those who need them the most, and to speak up for the people impacted by homelessness in our world. We are dedicated to giving back to our community, both in terms of resources and time. Our doors are open to those in need and our hearts are open to the individuals who require help.
