We are excited to share High Holidays with all who will be joining us virtually! All services will be online and available via YouTube, which means you can access them on your SmartTV, computer, and any other mobile device. While watching on YouTube, you will have the opportunity to turn on closed-captioning/ subtitles by pressing the “cc” button in the bottom right-hand corner of the video screen. We will also celebrate together with live Zoom events. Though we mourn the absence of in-person interactions, we are moved to know you are welcoming us into your homes as we come together to celebrate as best as we are able.

10-MINUTE ARK MOMENTS
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 – THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24

One of CBI’s most beloved High Holiday traditions gives every member of our community the opportunity to spend a moment of quiet contemplation before the Ark during our Yom Kippur Services.  While we cannot completely replicate this experience in this time of social distancing, any who wishes may sign up for a time to do so as the High Holidays approach, and throughout the ten days until Yom Kippur. Ark Moments are your opportunity to visit the Main Sanctuary for a 10-minute spiritual uplift.

Sign Up for a 10-Minute Ark Moment
