Every week, Shabbat gives you the gift of rest. Take this opportunity to slow down from your busy life and reflect on the past week and celebrate with our sacred community through music and prayer.

Just like there are many different types of Jews, we at CBI offer many different kinds of Shabbat worship opportunities. Whether you seek upbeat, contemporary music or more classical/traditional Reform music & settings of the liturgy, or if you have small children, we have a service that can meet your needs.

Shabbat Greeter Program  At CBI, we want everyone who attends our services to feel they are welcome and how thrilled we are to see them. One of the ways we do this is to make sure we have enthusiastic people to greet them, wish them "Shabbat Shalom!", and hand them a prayer book. Our dedicated group of greeters make sure visitors are welcomed into our synagogue, answer any questions, and help them find their way in the building. They also greet our members as they arrive, ask them how their week has been, re-establish old friendships, and generally make sure everyone feels welcome in their spiritual home.

Our greeters typically greet at two Shabbat services during a three month period. Since we greet on both Friday evenings and Saturday mornings, we accommodate each greeter’s preferences. We ask each greeter to be in place and ready to greet about 20 minutes prior to the start of the service and stay in place until about 10 minutes into the service. If you would like to become a greeter at CBI, please contact Harold Wilensky.

Hearing Enhancement For Worship Services and Special Programs:  Hearing enhancement devices are available both in the Sanctuary and in Smith Auditorium. If you would like to use one, please ask one of our friendly greeters.

Visiting Groups:  Groups interested in attending worship services should contact our Clergy Assistant at (512) 454-6806.  Letting us know that you are coming will help us make you feel welcome.
