Adult Forum offers creative, dynamic programming that provides spiritual, intellectual and social connections in a warm, friendly synagogue setting.  Adult Forum encourages community for adults at leisure.

Adult Forum generally offers two programs each month – “Lunch & Learn” – held on on Thursday afternoons at Congregation B’nai Israel consisting of a kosher lunch followed by a movie, speaker or entertainer. Our guest speakers touch on a wide variety of topics of Jewish interest, such as Bubbe Meisses and The Life and Literature of I.B. Singer. Rabbi Bayar and Cantor Wallach are also on the roster, and they always provide educational, entertaining and informative programs. Films have ranged from current releases to classic movies.  Our entertainers include vocalists and musicians.

In cooperation with the JCC of Central New Jersey, Adult Forumusually takes four day trips each year; two in the fall and two in the spring. Past “On the Road” trips have included traveling to The Museum of Jewish Heritage, World Trade Center Memorial site, and West Point.

You need not be a CBI member or an Adult Forum member (but it would be appreciated) to attend our programs and join us on group trips.
