Time to Relax Post-High Holidays with SUNRISE October 2014

Enjoy the beautiful fall weather with our first fall edition of SUNRISE!

This month's publication is filled with amazing pictures of our adorable Weintal Preschoolers as they start their school year. And terrific photos of our Religious School children (and Rabbi John!) as they learn from where we get our honey for our Rosh Hashanah tables. The great folks at Quiver Farms (the ones who brought us goats last spring) brought honeybees!


Cantor Sharon Brown-Levy Brings New Music Programs to CBI!

CBI is pleased to announce that, under the direction of our new Cantor, Sharon Brown-Levy, we will be offering two choir opportunities and, for the very first time, an instrumental band to bring music to our services, the community, and beyond!


A Letter from Rabbi Schechter Concerning the Crisis in Israel - July 31, 2014

We are all very concerned about the current crisis in Israel. Every day we read the papers, blogs, and listen to the television news reports of the conflict between Israel and Hamas-led Gaza. The death toll mounts, people point fingers, international condemnation is strong on all sides. As difficult as it is to observe this from 6000 miles away, it is even more difficult to determine the right questions to ask, analyze the myriad "solutions" to the conflict, and pray that this will all come to a peaceful conclusion.


CBI Welcomes Cantor Sharon Brown-Levy July 1st!

Cantor Sharon Brown-Levy joins our synagogue after serving as Cantor of Temple Emanu-El of West Essex in Livingston, NJ for eight years. In addition to those years, she offers an additional eleven years as Cantor of Temple Beth-El of St. Petersburg, FL, and membership since 2006 in the New Jersey Cantors Concert Ensemble (NJCCE), the nation's oldest established organization of networking cantors.


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.
