August 20: Update from the CBI Board and Rabbi Re: the Days of Awe

Here’s our update on how we’re handling the high holidays at CBI this year given COVID realities.  

Runway to the Days of Awe

Tisha b’Av (July 17) begins our runway to the Days of Awe 5782 / 2021. Here’s our full schedule for high holiday offerings both onsite and online.

As of June, We’re Moving to Multi-Access!

Starting in June 2021: if our primary constituent communities are green or grey on the state COVID map (and if weather permits), we’ll hold hybrid services outdoors! We’ll also continue to offer a robust Zoom option so you can also participate online from wherever you are.
For those joining us onsite: we’ll meet under the willow tree behind the shul, and pursuant to new CDC guidelines, singing together in person will be allowed! We ask that those participating onsite (as opposed to online) continue to wear masks at this time.  Click through to read all about how this will work. 

Our Zoom link is never posted online (for security reasons) but is included in our weekly email announcements, which come out on Thursdays. And on Fridays, we’ll send an email letting you know if we’re meeting onsite this week in addition to online. If you’re not on our email list, reach out to the office at cbinadams at gmail dot com and our administrator Oliver Jones can add you.

A Video Message from Rabbi Rachel – As We Approach Hybrid
