Here are some FAQs that will hopefully answer some of your initial questions about CBJ, but please feel free to reach out to us with any additional questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What do you offer young families?
We offer a wide array of funds and educational activities for children and families. Our Beit Sefer Hebrew school accommodates pre-K through seventh grade, and offers preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
We also hold community events throughout the year to celebrate the holidays and promote Jewish culture and traditions.
What are the benefits of CBJ membership?
Members have access for all lifecycle needs (weddings, B’nai Mitzvahs, Confirmations, funerals, brit milah and baby naming ceremonies), and for counseling and pastoral visits.
Tickets for the High Holidays are included in membership fees. Tickets for out of town family members can be purchased at a greatly discounted price.
Our Religious School offers great programming, fun activities, and hands-on learning experiences for children from kindergarten through Confirmation.
Our Sisterhood and Brotherhood are very active and hold various learning and social events throughout the year.
Our social activities provide an opportunity to meet new people, and develop strong friendships.
Contact our membership chair, Barbara Aharoni to learn more.
What movement are you affiliated with?
CBJ is part of the reform movement and a member of Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).
How does the religious school operate?
In the wake of the pandemic, we pivoted to zoom learning and plan to continue to have Hebrew classes during the week. Sunday religious school classes will resume this year.
How do you support interfaith families?
Our goal is to provide a comfortable and welcoming place at CBJ. Whether part of an interfaith family, an extension of an interfaith family, we strive to ensure that every member of our congregational family feels at home.
Do I have to be a member to come to CBJ?
While we offer programs and worship services for our members, we have an open door policy. We welcome anyone to come and join us for a Shabbat service or an event. We are always here to answer any questions you may have.
When do you hold Shabbat Services?
We hold our Shabbat Services every Friday night at 7:00pm, unless otherwise noted. Services are held at the Synagogue, but due to the pandemic, they are currently on Zoom. Contact us for details.
