Thursday, May 24, 6:30 pm: Join us for our “kickoff” to our 125th Birthday Celebration – a special evening service and cake! Starting at 6:30, Rabbi will host a brief (30-min) weekday evening service followed by an informal birthday celebration (cake!) recognizing the 125thanniversary of CBI’s founding. This kickoff event will be followed by an exciting, formal celebration being planned by an ad hoc committee for the fall. A “Save the Date” postcard with details of the formal celebration will be in the mail in late spring.

Saturday, May 26, 9:30 a.m.: Reb Rachel will lead the morning Shabbat services.

Take and Eat Program Update:
Each month, with support from a crew of 50 volunteers, we shop for, cook, prepare and deliver meals for ~100 local residents in need. Join this CBI Community Service project. Donations are always welcome and may be given in honor of community simchas or as memorial gifts.
