This Week at CBI
Congregation Beth Israel is an open community for all who wish to join in our celebration of Judaism.
We would like to note here our deep appreciation for Althea Horne, our CBI Executive Director, whose day with us was October 13. She has managed her position with grace and humor and amazing skill. We will miss you, Alethea. We wish you unbounded success in all your future endeavors.
At the very bottom of this page is the YouTube icon. This will lead to several videos from the Food Festival, Rosh Hashanah, and Yom Kippur. It also gets to the September 9 Adult Ed talk by Jonathan Lipow on the topic of health care in the United States.
Congregation Beth Israel's mission is to be a welcoming and inclusive center for Jewish life in the Monterey Peninsula area.
As a center for Jewish life in our area, accessible to Jews of all backgrouns and their familes, Congregation
Beth Israel will serve as a house of prayer, a house of study, and a house of community, consistent with Jewish values and ethics.
Congregation Beth Israel is the dynamic, bibrant center for Jewish life in the Monterey Peninsula area. Our members celebrate and nurture relationships with God and with each other while respecting and wrestling with our Jewish tradition.
Our doors are open to all who seek the guidance of our Jewish faith. We strive to make a positive impact on our community and on the human condition through Tikkun Olam.
CBI is a proud American synagogue that loves and supports the Jewish homeland in Israel. We endeavor to instill pride in our identity, recognizing those who came before us while we build a strong Jewish foundation for future generations. Members and guests are all accepted and respected equally; they will be encouraged to participate through community study, worship, and celebration. We derive programming and administrative strength from our affiliation with the Union of Reform Judaism.
