However, for the immediate future, we are encouraging mask wearing in the sanctuary and other indoor spaces for the safety and benefit of others. You may find more details, including what to expect when you visit the CBI campus at www.bethisrael-pdx.org/masks/. With limited exceptions for B’nei Mitzvah celebrants, their families, and invited guests, Shabbat Morning Services are online ONLY.
