Ongoing Volunteer Opportunity! Be a Great Neighbor!

Sundays, 9:00-9:30 am, Trader Joe’s (2122 NW Glisan)

Every Sunday morning, a CBI team helps to load, transport, and unload a truckload of food donated from Trader Joe’s on NW Glisan to our neighbors at NW Towers and Annex. This food donation helps an average of 40 households each week, many of whom rely on it as their main food source. New volunteers, especially those with trucks or SUVs, are welcome to participate. Please contact Sally Rosenfeld.

Mitzvah Day

An annual highlight of the CBI calendar, our community truly comes together each Spring for Mitzvah Day. Congregants of all ages participate in a variety of activities to support good works throughout the Portland area. Past years’ projects have included meal preparation for shelters, sorting clothing for seasonal workers,  cleaning and organization the Lift Urban Portland  and Sunshine Pantry food warehouses,  work at the Children’s Book Bank and maintenance of our own Beth Israel Cemetery.  A special Family Mitzvah Center allows our littlest mensches to make a difference with special projects tailored to their skills.

Mitzvah Day is run entirely by CBI volunteers, so if you have a great idea for a project or want to get involved in planning, please let us know!
