A community of families with children 0-5 creating lasting friendships, Jewish connection and memories together.
Join us this summer for some amazing events taking place all over Portland! We’ll be berry picking, doing Shabbat in the park and taking hikes- don’t miss out! You can click here to download our calendar right into our phone or you can click here to download the PDF.
For Mini Mensches who are less than 2 years away from Kindergarten and potty trained- we have a class for you! It’s a two year curriculum for kids who are 3 and 4 and meets most Sundays during the school year. Learn more about our Religious School program here!
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!
