High Holidays at CBI

High Holidays at CBI

We are looking forward to gathering with our kehilah kedosha for High Holidays 5779. Our clergy have been planning services that will invite each of us to reflect on the meaning of our lives, our capacity for gratitude, and our relationships with the divine.  We have planned family-friendly, multi-generational, and traditional services as well as opportunities for study and discussion, and community connection, all of which are detailed below.

CBI Members will receive a detailed schedule of services, information about this year’s Book of Remembrance,  and a Household Pass, which will admit your family to the services of your choosing, by late July.  Non-members who wish to join us for the High Holidays can find information about doing so here.
