THE SPIRIT OF THE HIGH HOLIDAYS AT CBI
We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming congregational community. During the High Holidays, when so many people join together to celebrate the New Year, we have a special opportunity and responsibility to nurture this feeling of warmth and be an accepting community.
We are all aware that this year is going to be a unique one filled with new experiences. The COVID-19 pandemic has created many challenges to our High Holiday expectations. While we would all love to gather together at CBI for our traditional services, we know that this will not be possible, and therefore are seeking new ways to have a meaningful, spiritual and holy holiday season. With that in mind, below is information about the many opportunities that CBI has planned starting with the beginning of the month of Elul through that last Shofar blast on Yom Kippur.
L’shanah Tovah U’metukah!
May this be a sweet and good new year!
