Supporting Israel Helps CBI

Perform a triple mitzvah by supporting the Jewish National Fund (JNF), Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI), and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ).  Buy or donate by clicking the JNF/United Synagogue “button” (below).  From your purchase or gift, 20% will return to CBI and another 5% will go to USCJ to assist congregational Israel advocacy programs.

We at CBI can:

  • Provide stipends for our eligible youth (high school and college) to supplement expenses for programs in Israel.
  • Extend assistance for our youth, especially USYers, to attend AIPAC, JNF, and other pro-Israel events.
  • Create congregational / community events for support of CBI’s JNF Projects, eg, Tu B’Shvat Seder.
  • Contribute to costs of bringing top-notch programs and speakers to CBI-hosted Israel advocacy events.

You can:

  • Plant trees in Israel in honor or memory of friends or loved ones.
  • Make a donation to any of JNF’s many projects in Israel.
  • Purchase anything from the JNF store.
