CBI Book Group

The Congregation Beth Israel book club is on summer vacation! If you want to add a selection of great Jewish books to your summer reading list, we recommend The Great Escape by Kati Marton and A Marriage of Opposites by Alice Hoffman, both of which we will discuss when we reconvene this fall.

Find Your Ancestral Roots

Tatiana Lifshitz, a member of CBI expert in genealogy and research can help you start building your tree and teach you the beginnings of research methods available online. She can help with the archives around the world, foreign languages and expertise in immigration laws and history helpful to identify the origins and paths traveled by your ancestors.

Say "Hello...Shabbat Shalom"

Be a Greeter! Welcome friends, congregants, guests and newcomers at Friday evening Shabbat services. It’s easy. Ask people to wear a name tag. Hand out the weekly announcement flyer. Answer the important questions in life – like, where’s the bathroom? Greeters arrive at 5:30, half an hour before services begin (by the way, snagging the best parking spots); and stay a few minutes extra afterwards to mingle. Sign up here and wear your best smile.
