Welcome from Rabbi Bruce D. Greenbaum  

Rabbi Bruce D. GreenbaumShalom and welcome to Congregation Beth Israel.  We are the largest and oldest Synagogue on the Monterey Peninsula.  There is a strong sense of community here.  We want all our members and visitors to feel comfortable at CBI.

We are a Reform Congregation, a member of the Union For Reform Judaism, in the mainstream of liberal Judaism.  As liberal Jews we look to our heritage as a repository of wisdom, insight and numerous possibilities for religious expression.

We welcome you to join us at one of our Friday evening or Saturday morning Shabbat services. To learn more about the Temple through personal contact, please contact our Temple office at (831) 624-2015 or E-mail shalomcbi@aol.com. We would be delighted to go over membership possibilities for you and to answer any questions you might have.

Peace and blessings,

Rabbi Bruce D. Greenbaum

CBI Mitzvah Opportunities  

Ongoing Food Drive - One in five Monterey County residents (90,000) are served annually by the Food Bank. Nearly half of them are children. CBI is joining other local faicommunities to stock the Food Bank shelves for the winter and is maintaining food collection barrels in our foyer. Please donate non-perishable food items to the Monterey County Food Bank. If you prefer, an easy alternative is to participate in the "Buy Food for a Hungry Family" virtual food drive by making a monetary donation to www.foodbankformontereycounty.org.

I-HELP - Additional donations of men's socks, undergarments, coats and sweatshirts are greatly needed during the winter season. Donations can be dropped off at CBI and will be distributed at the dinner each month.
