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:

HINENI CAMPAIGN TOTALS TOP $400,000; HINENI CASH PAYMENTS SHAVE 12% FROM CBE’S MORTGAGE
August 29, 2017 — The momentum from the Hineni challenge match keeps on giving. Since the $50,000 challenge was announced on May 6th, congregants exceeded the challenge with $63,000 in matching donations by the June 30th deadline. And then…our community donated an additional $96,000 within one month of the challenge match ending!
In only 11 months, the three-year Hineni “Stand with CBE” capital campaign has raised $406,000 in pledges and cash. CBE recently applied the $355,000 in Hineni cash payments toward CBE’s mortgage. Not only did that payment reduce our mortgage by 12% but it generates an immediate monthly savings of $2,500 in mortgage interest payments!
Our community’s deep feelings about our synagogue and extraordinary generosity are helping secure a bright future for CBE. Thank you to the171 Hineni donorsfor their meaningful donations.
