A community of families with children 0-5 creating lasting friendships, Jewish connection and memories together.
Mini Menches have a couple ways to celebrate Chanukah this year! Get in the spirit at one (or all!) of our Chanukah events:
Join Mini Mensches for a morning of learning all about Chanukah! We’ll sing, dance and do crafts to get in the spirit of the holiday. We’ll even have latkes!
Bring the whole family—and your chanukiah!—for a lively Shabbat Evening Service, music, crafts, and games. Enjoy latkes, salad, and donuts. Feel the warmth of community as we light the candles together.
You’re Invited to Rabbi Joseph’s Annual Chanukah Open House! Join our community and celebrate Chanukah with Rabbi Joseph. This event requires an RSVP to receive the location.
Learn all about the things that CBI is doing for Chanukah and get some ideas for recipes, crafts and more on our Chanukah Page.

The more we know- the better we can serve you. Tell us a little about your family and your interests with this short survey!
A mensch is an upright citizen who lives out our Jewish values in daily life. A mensch is exactly who you want your child to be! A mensch is someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character.
Mini Mensches are families with children ages 0-5. This program is free and open to all in our community. You do not have to be a member of Congregation Beth Israel to join Mini Mensches.
Tot Shabbat (all ages): A sweet 30 minute Saturday morning service with CBI’s clergy, music, crafts and snacks! We hold these on the first and third Saturday of each month.
Classes offered for parents and grandparents of young children that are specific to the challenges and day to day things you face (like time management and visioning).
More is being added all the time! We provide programming based on the needs and wants of our community. If you’d like to see a certain type of event, let us know. We’d be happy to help make it happen!
