Don't Miss a Single Exciting Photo of the April 2014 SUNRISE

This month you can relive every fun and exciting minute from CBI's Annual Spring Gala Come Together!   The band, Beatles Faux Sale, knocked everyone's socks off--you'd swear The Beatles were on the stage. The auction was huge, the wine pull and treasure box both bountiful, and dancing till your feet hurt was de rigeur.


CBI's Memorial Wall Honors Our Loved Ones

Honoring the memory of a departed loved one is an important facet of Jewish life. At CBI there are many different opportunities to honor our parents, grandparents, or other family members who have passed on. One very special way to do this is to place his or her name on a plaque on the Memorial Wall of our Retreat Room, adjoining the Sanctuary.
