Our services are a combination of traditional and contemporary prayer and music. Each service includes lively congregational melodies, traditional chant (nusach), meaningful English readings and explanations of the prayers, and a thought-provoking sermon or brief Torah study. Our talented choir adds their voices to our services several times a year on Friday evenings, as well as on many Shabbat mornings and holidays.
Every Friday evening throughout the year
On Shabbat mornings and holidays
For our monthly Sunday morning minyan.
For our monthly Friday evening Tot Shabbat (for newborn through preschool-aged children) and Familiy Services
For Junior Congregation and K'tonton (young childrens') services on Shabbat mornings during the school year.
On Shabbat mornings when there is neither a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or holiday service, Rabbi Mintz leads a Torah study and discussion.
We invite you to attend our services! We welcome interfaith families, visitors, and anyone interested in learning, singing, and praying with our community.
Family Shabbat Service First Friday of the month at 7:00 p.m.
Geared especially toward children in grades one through six, yet designed to be welcoming for all adults and children, our monthly Family Shabbat services feature many opportunities forparticipation, uplifting and lively new melodiesmixed in with our familiar tunes, and instrumental accompaniment by CBE’s own talentedmusicians. Each month, children, and even families together, have the opportunity to lead aprayer, blessing or song in the service. This is afun way for children (and parents) to learn andto feel the special sense of joy and pride thatcomes with leading a community in prayer. Please let Rabbi Mintz or Cantor Spierer know ifyou or your child would like to help lead.
After the service, we will enjoy a special oneg Shabbat, a time for a nosh and visiting with old and new friends together.
Tot Shabbat Services Typically the third Friday of the month at 6:00 p.m.
All of our youngest children and their families are invited to sing, dance, pray, and learn at our monthly Tot Shabbat services with Cantor Sarra. Children with a birthday during the month will receive a special birthday song. During "Torah Time," we will hear a story and march in the sanctuary with our own Torah scrolls. After services, we will all come together for Oneg Shabbat, a sweet nosh and conversation in the Social Hall. This is a wonderful way to meet new friends in the community!
If you'd like, bring your own (dairy) dinner and join us at 5:15 PM as we eat together in the Social Hall before the service. All are welcome.
If you have any questions or for more information please contact Cantor Sarra.
