CBI offers a variety of services for families that teach the songs and rhythm of Shabbat for children of all ages. Join us for meaningful experiences and memories that blend Jewish learning and living. Children are always welcome in the sanctuary for services; guests are always welcome at any services!

Please refer to the synagogue weekly email, the synagogue bulletin, or the calendar on the CBI website for exact dates for these services, or print this schedule.

FAMILY SHABBAT SERVICE (for K-6th graders and their families)

Monthly Saturdays, from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm 

A vibrant Shabbat service on Saturday morning filled with singing and storytelling, including a special up-close look at the Torah as we read part of the weekly parasha. Children take an active part in leading prayers and chanting Torah. Parents and children will learn and pray together, participate in discussion and act out a play. Following services, we welcome families to stay for Kiddush with the entire congregation.


SHIR SHABBAT (Families with children of all ages)

Monthly Fridays, 6:00 to 6:45 pm

A shorter version of the traditional Friday night service in the Sanctuary with upbeat singing, led by our clergy and children together. Services are often followed by a catered Congregational Shabbat Dinner. (Or, just come for the service.)
