At CBI, we proudly champion:
* A common future rooted in Jewish education, culture, text, values, and history;
* Diversity of practice, tradition, and spiritual path;
* Reverence for Torah, for each other, for our community, for all people, and for our planet.
To this end, we offer several prayer service options that happen at CBI on a regular basis.
Kabbalat Shabbat Services are weekly in the Sanctuary on Friday evenings from 6:00 – 7:00 pm. Special services (such as Kol – a musical Kabbalat service) are held each month.
Each Shabbat morning in the Sanctuary we have our main minyan, led by Rabbi Justin David. Services are from 9:30 am to approximately noon. After services, we enjoy a community Kiddush and luncheon together. You are always welcome to join us for Kiddush and lunch, whether you are a member or not, and whether you came to services or not! Please join us – we look forward to seeing you there!
Shabbat Family Jam, is a monthly, exuberant and participatory Shabbat service featuring singing, storytelling, and communal prayer. For school-aged children, their parents, and the community.
Shabbat Shabloom is a monthly, lively Saturday morning program for 3 to 5 year olds and their families. Together we celebrate the beautiful aspects of Shabbat through songs, stories, dance and creative movement.
Contemplative Morning Meditation takes place on Thursday morning, 8:00 am in the library. In this meditation, we create a quiet and focused group setting in which each individual may engage in devotion/prayer.
We have started a weekly Mincha service each Wednesday at 5:3 0pm. It’s a Mitzvah to form a Minyan. Those reciting Kaddish will be most appreciative if you do. If you need to form another minyan for Kaddish please contact the CBI office at 413 584-3593 Monday – Thursday 8:30am – 5:00pm and Friday 8:30am – 2:30pm.
