Livestream CBI Services

Congregation Beth Israel welcomes you to our streaming services. Here are some instructions to help you get started.

  • Below, you will see a “Downloads” section. For some of our services, we provide slides you can download to help follow the service.  If a link to slides for today’s service is there, we recommend downloading them and viewing them in a separate window or on another device. You may also access an online copy of our Prayer Book if you prefer to follow along that way.
