When God called Abraham and Sarah they answered, “הנני HINENI (I am here) and ready to do what is necessary for our people.”
Like our father Abraham and our mother Sarah, we at Beth Elohim need to be here for our congregation. This campaign is one powerful way to “be here and stand with CBE” and ensure that Beth Elohim will be here for the next generations.
This is a meaningful time for our Congregation as we prepare to honor and celebrate Rabbi Lewis Mintz, our spiritual and community leader for the last 40 years. In honor of his retirement from the pulpit and accomplishments, we have launched the הנני Hineni "Stand with CBE" Campaign to raise $1,000,000. The goal is to secure CBE's long-term future during this time of celebration.
With your support, Beth Elohim will continue to be here for every aspect of your Jewish life in our community. Making as significant a donation as you and your family can is vital to building on this legacy of 40 years and ensuring that CBE will be here for you, your children, your grandchildren, and generations to come.
In the spirit of Hineni, please "Stand with CBE" as we continue to build a meaningful future together. Show your support by submitting a pledge form or making a donation now:

$50,000 CHALLENGE MATCH MET AND EXCEEDED BY $13,000!
July 2, 2017 — We did it! We exceeded the challenge to raise $50,000 in matching contributions in honor of Rabbi Mintz’s retirement by $13,000!We have reason to feel tremendous pride and gratitude to the 159 Hineni donors across every generation of our community who stretched themselves to make meaningful donations. We took an important step toward securing CBE’s future for us, our children, our grandchildren and generations beyond.
Boosted tremendously by the challenge offered by some generous donors, the three-year “Stand with CBE” Hineni campaign has raised more than $350,000 in only nine months. Reaching Hineni’s $1 million goal will reduce our mortgage interest payments by $80,000 annually year after year.
CBE will pay down our mortgage using all Hineni funds received by July 21st. We have $265,159 in Hineni cash donations which will reduce our annual mortgage payments by $21,000+ immediately and for years to come. Any Hineni cash or stock transfers (new payments toward past pledges and new donations) received by CBE by July 21st will be applied toward the mortgage and increase the savings.
