This year, we are coming to you: into your homes (virtually), into many of your neighborhoods (physically), and into your hearts (intentionally).  We affirm that no religious observance should be prioritized over the health and safety of each and every member of our community. We know the best way we can truly serve our entire community is to keep us apart in body, but connected in every other way.  Join us and support us on this journey “Side by Side at CBI” as we come together as a kehillah kedoshah, a holy community.  Whether this is our first holiday season together or our fiftieth, we invite you to celebrate with us "Side by Side at CBI."

Book of Remembrance

Our tradition teaches us to honor the memory our departed loved ones during Yizkor services on Yom Kippur as well Shemini Atzeret, Pesach and Shavuot. 

Click here to download our Book of Remembrance.

Yizkor Appeal

The Yizkor service provides us the opportunity to pause and reflect upon the memory of loved ones no longer with us.  While we are unable to pray together, we express our hope the deceased rest in peace under God’s divine protection. We pledge to give tzedakah in their memory and, as we honor their memory, we help CBI secure its future.

Make your Yizkor pledge here.
