L’shana Tova! Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year! At CBI we strive to create a positive, inclusive, Reform Jewish congregation that allows us to nurture meaningful relationships and a profound sense of belonging. Before, during, and after our Yamim Noraim – our Days of Awe – we invite you to participate in our sacred community. I look forward to celebrating with you throughout our Holy Days.  L’shana Tova! Rabbi Charlie
 
It is a long-standing policy at CBI never to turn anyone away because of financial hardship and we remain committed to this value. This is especially true for services and meals during our High Holy Days. 
 
If you have questions regarding the cost of High Holy Day events please contact Rabbi Charlie at rabbi@CongregationBethIsrael.org or our Treasurer at treasurer@congregationbethisrael.org.

WORSHIP SERVICES
We are delighted to host services at our synagogue and we are happy to have Marta Johnson, our High Holy Day soloist, celebrating with us throughout the Days of Awe. We encourage you to arrive early to find adequate seating.
 
Traveling? Just because you are away from home doesn't mean you can't observe the High Holy Days. Members of URJ congregations who will be traveling are generally welcomed to worship at fellow URJ congregations. If you are unable to be at CBI for either Rosh Hashanah or Yom Kippur this year, please complete the “Reciprocity Form” (above) and submit it to our office.  The form needs to be sent from our congregation to the one offering hospitality. Therefore, let us know as soon as you can, and we'll help you get connected with a synagogue wherever you may be.

SEATING

 
CBI members in good standing receive tickets for High Holy Day services as part of their membership. Tickets are available for immediate relatives of CBI members who are visiting with a donation of $75/adult and $18/child (12 years and younger).
 
NON-MEMBERS - A limited number of seats are available for non-members with a donation of $360/adult and $36/child (12 and younger.) Check-in will begin in the CBI lobby 45 minutes prior to services.

We want you to join us during this sacred time.
 
YOUTH SERVICES & ACTIVITIES
We are once again offering our youth a relevant, educational and engaging High Holy Days experience. 

We offer age appropriate services and activities for all youth from Kindergarten through 5th Grade during our morning services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Please make sure to register your children so we know how many to plan for.

We rely on volunteers to facilitate our youth programs and services. Adults, high school students, and middle school students can volunteer. If you're able to help for a 45-minute time slot during services, please sign up during registration.

 
CHILDCARE
We will offer childcare for children ages 18 months to 7 years old during evening and afternoon services and for ages 18 months through Pre-K during morning services. We need to know in advance how many children will take advantage of this opportunity.
 
Please complete the “Childcare Request Form" (above) prior to August 23 so  we can make final arrangements.  You will be contacted once we have a final count to determine whether or not childcare will be provided.
 
SPONSORSHIP
A donation of $180 entitles you and your immediate family to one (1) reserved parking space for all HHD Events and the Rosh Hashanah Luncheon.  Your sponsorship will be recognized in our Service Booklet and at our luncheon.
 

HELP NEEDED

High Holy Days observance at CBI does not happen without a great deal of volunteer support. To make our services, meals and youth programs successful we need volunteers. When registering for HHD Events please complete the volunteer section.

 
PARKING
Even with parking at the church across the street spaces are limited. If possible, we ask that you carpool with friends and family. Please remember, there is no parking on Pleasant Run Road.
