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. We have launched the הנני Hineni "Stand with CBE" campaign to raise $1,000,000 to reduce CBE’s building mortgage and secure our long-term future.
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 CBE’s legacy of 41 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:

CBE Exceeds the Hineni Challenge! Hineni Totals Surge Past Half-Million Dollar Threshold
July 3, 2018—In only five weeks, Hineni Challenge match donors gave $53,283 toward the $50,000 challenge put forth by some generous congregants. Once again, our congregants have stepped forward with tremendous generosity to support the wonderful CBE community that has so enriched our lives.
Here are the latest highlights of the Hineni "Stand with CBE" mortgage reduction campaign
By meeting the challenge, Hineni overall totals have increased by $103,000+ to over $520,000-more than half-way to $1 million goal of the campaign in only 21 months.
This latest wave of giving to Hineni will increase our savings related to mortgage interest payments from $35,000 to $44,000 per year-year after year.
We thank the seed donors for their leadership and generosity in presenting this challenge to our community and the 78 donors who participated in this challenge match.
We are grateful to the 191 Hineni donors for playing such a pivotal role in improving CBE's financial outlook. To show how broadly and generously CBE has embraced Hineni, consider that 61% congregants have donated to Hineni and 42% of them gave multiple times. Plus, the average total donation to Hineni per donor is $2,700+.
Congratulations and thank you to the Hineni Committee members who worked tirelessly to support and orchestrate this campaign. They include Ann Budner, Barbara Green-Whitbeck, Dan Klein, Pam & Jonah Laufer, Natalie Matus, Linda Minkoff, Lindsay Rosenman, and Ellen Valade.
Even though the challenge has ended, giving to Hineni continues. Please join us by helping fulfill the Hineni campaign goal of $1 million and increasing the annual savings in mortgage interest payments to $88,000.
