About Our Services

Two women with the Torah

Starting in June 2021, CBI is shifting from all-digital offerings (which has been our norm during the pandemic thus far) to multi-access / hybrid outdoor offerings. You can join us either online or onsite! Each Friday we’ll send out a message to let you know how Shabbat will be celebrated. If our primary constituent towns are green or grey on the state COVID map, and if the weather forecast is good, we’ll celebrate Shabbat outdoors under the willow tree — with singing, and with masks. We’ll also maintain a robust Zoom option so that those participating online are also full participants. Here’s a blog post with more information.

 

 

Services at CBI

Shabbat morning services are held three Saturday mornings a month at 9:30am, and Kabbalat Shabbat services are held one Friday night each month (at 7:30 pm in summer and 7:00 pm in winter). For dates and times of upcoming services, including holidays, check our Calendar.  Rabbi Rachel leads davenen twice a month, and our other services are led by others in the community, including Rabbi Pam Wax and Rabbi Jarah Greenfield. 

During the pandemic, all of our services have been held in CBI’s Zoom room. Starting in June 2021 we hope to begin offering multi-access / hybrid worship offerings.

What to Expect at Our Services

Davenen (prayer) at CBI is informal, song-filled and participatory. Most of our music invites group singing, and when Rabbi Rachel is leading services she typically leads with a guitar in hand. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know Hebrew or if you don’t know the words – we invite you to hum, tap and clap along!
