Shavua tov – a good new week to you!
This week our Zoom offerings include Rabbinic Drop-In Hour (1pm Mondays), Friday Morning Meditation (9am Fridays), Kabbalat Shabbat Services (7:30pm Friday), and Let’s Talk About Racial Justice! (7pm Sunday), all in the CBI Zoom room with the usual password.
Links and password will go out out in the CBI Announcements email (and are the same as previous weeks) but if you don’t have them, contact the office.
Special Events This Week:
Join us at 7:30pm on Friday for Pride Shabbat. Together we’ll welcome Shabbat with prayer and song, and also uplift and celebrate LGBTQIA folks in our community with special readings and blessings. All are welcome!
Let’s talk about Racial Justice!
Sunday, June 28, 7-9pm in our Zoom room!
The Reform movement has been wrestling with the issues of racial justice for some time. Join us at CBI as we watch a short video together featuring three Reform Jews discussing the challenges they face as Jews of color. We will also discuss the URJ’s recent statement on Black Lives Matter, and have time to brainstorm next steps within our own community. Facilitated by Rabbis Pam Wax and Rachel Barenblat.
This week we’re reading from parashat Korach. If you’d like to read some commentaries on this week’s parsha, here are a few:
- 2006: The hubris of Korach
- 2007: Korach: fruitful tension between paradigms
- 2008: Bloom [Torah poem]
- 2009: Fruit [Torah poem]
- 2013: Korach, privilege, and striving for more
- 2017: A Failed Rebellion (at My Jewish Learning)

Hope to see you soon at CBI!
