Once again we have hired parking attendants for our evening services. If you are willing to come early for our morning services and assist in directing parking below the synagogue, please call our Administrator Alethea Horne at 624-2015. For security purposes and in support of our congregation, please bring your name tags to all our Holy Day services. Temporary name tags for guests will be available for those who are not CBI members. While you can still get name tags the day of the services, if possible, please call the office and make arrangements in advance.
