Dear CBI Members,

Jeff Capen here, new President of the CBI Brotherhood. I’m excited to start my two year term leading this awesome group, taking over for Past President Andy Olshin.

Our main goal this year is simple: FUN and growth in participation. We want to engage all members in fun and casual events so we can build community within our synagogue and beyond. We invite not only Brotherhood members, but any congregants that may be considering joining the Brotherhood or who have been active in the past, but less so recently, to come eat, drink and fellowship with the men in our community.

I hope that you consider joining this dynamic and fun group to help make our organization and synagogue stronger. Please consider the small role you and potentially a small group of your close friends at CBI can play in helping us to achieve our goals.

Questions about Brotherhood, what we do, and how to get involved? Please reach out to me at 503.888.5191 or email Tracy in the CBI office and she’ll put us in touch.

Best wishes,


Brotherhood Mission
