Shavua tov, chag sameach, and looking forward to Shabbat Chanukah!
Shabbat Services This Week
Join us this week for multi-access Shabbat Chanukah Morning Services at 9:30am on Saturday. Because it’s Chanukah, we’ll sing the praise songs of Hallel with our morning service.
For those onsite, we’re planning an indoor service, with social distancing and masks. For those online, we’ll meet in the CBI Zoom room as usual.

Happenings at CBI
Join us on Friday night in the CBI Zoom room for our monthly First Friday Shabbat Zoom Dinner. This month Rabbi Rachel will join us and will lead us in kindling the Chanukah lights as well as Shabbat candles, and we’ll share some Chanukah conversation and songs.
And join us at 4:30pm on Saturday afternoon for our Shabbat Chanukah Bonfire. Bring your own camp chair / folding chair, dress warmly, and bring a travel mug for hot cider! We’ll sing Chanukah songs by the fire as Shabbat draws to its early close.
Hope to see you soon at CBI.
