South Shore Erev Shabbat at CBJ (and Zoom)

March 29, 2024    
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

All are welcome to attend our South Shore Shabbat Service – CBJ is the host this year!  

For the past several years, seven reform temples located on the South Shore have been observing Erev Shabbat services together. CBJ has been participating in this collaborative Shabbat service for the past couple of years, since Rabbi Mills became our rabbi.  This is a remarkable event as the rabbis and cantors from each congregation lead us all in worship.  Each year, this service is hosted by a different congregation, and it is our turn this year.  Please mark your calendars and plan to come out that evening as we sing, pray, and share the Shabbat experience as a community. This service will be both at our Temple and online via Zoom.  

We are privileged to have Rabbi Josh Weinberg as our guest speaker that night. You may read more about him below.
