Mini Mensches Tot Shabbats Summer 2021

Twice a month we get together with CBI clergy and our smallest mensches to welcome Shabbat with music and fun! In the summer we hold them outside, and sometimes at parks around the city. The music starts at 9 AM and after our 30(ish) minute service we hang out together for schmoozing and hanging out. At this time we are asking that people arrive masked, and RSVP for the program.

Mini Mensch Music


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!
