High Holidays


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 look forward to this time to gather together at CBI for our traditional services and are excited to welcome the new year together. We are continuing our innovative ways to gather both in person (using both indoor and outdoor venues) and online. However you join us, we look forward to sharing 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!


Entering the Synagogue
It takes everyone’s buy-in and partnership to ensure the safety of our synagogue throughout the High Holidays. Please help us by ONLY entering through the designated main entrance on Millburn Avenue and remembering to bring your tickets each time. We will have a security checkpoint inside the lobby to check tickets.

Parking Lot Access is Reserved
The synagogue parking lot is reserved for congregants who require easy access to the building due to physical limitations and for Synagogue Sustainers. These congregants will be able to use the parking lot entrance to come into the building but all others should enter via Millburn Ave.
