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 CREATES $100,000 OPPORTUNITY
May 25, 2017 — Did you know that the "Stand with CBE" Hineni campaign has raised nearly $250,000 in pledges and donations in only nine months since the campaign was announced last Yom Kippur? And Hineni is on the verge of raising another $100,000 if we can match a $50,000 challenge offered by some generous donors in honor of Rabbi Mintz's 40 years of service to our community. Announced at Rabbi Mintz's gala on May 6th, the challenge match runs through June 30th when he officially retires.
With already $200,000 in Hineni donations received in cash, CBE is preparing to apply these funds to pay down its mortgage in July. What does this all mean? The time to make a donation to Hineni or convert your pledge to a partial or full payment is before June 30 when the challenge match ends and a lump sum payment will made on the mortgage.
