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 support congregational Israel advocacy programs.


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.

For automatic credit: All orders and donations originating from the JNF/United Synagogue “button” (online) on CBI’s website will be credited automatically to our partnership.

For manual credit: You can also call [800-542-8733] or mail (78 Randall Ave, Rockville Centre, NY 11570) your orders and donations, but mention that Congregation B’nai Israel of St Petersburg is your synagogue.

  • MAIL: On the envelope and on the insert, please write “Partner – Cong B’nai Israel of St Petersburg”.
  • CALL: Inform JNF that “Cong B’nai Israel of St Petersburg” is a partner congregation.
