Join Us!

Welcome

Join us for our weekly Shabbat services and wide array of ongoing educational, musical, and social programming! Our schedule of recurring and upcoming events is below in chronological order, complete, where applicable, with the links for those why wish to participate virtually.  

In continued response to the Covid-19 pandemic, masks are optional–but certainly welcome–for all who join us on the CBI Campus. We continue to strongly encourage members of our community, and of the greater Portland community, to be fully vaccinated.

For the safety and comfort of our community, large backpacks, bags, purses and/or packages ARE NOT ALLOWED in Pollin Chapel or our Main Sanctuary. Our greeters may request to inspect these items and ask that you secure them elsewhere
