Shabbat Morning Study
On the first Shabbat of each month (January, February, ... , December) CBI will hold a traditional Shabbat service, starting at 9:00 AM and ending at about 10:30 a.m. with Shabbat Study following at 10:45 a.m.
On every 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Shabbat will be a study session with the Rabbi to discuss the week's Torah portion, starting at 10:30 AM and ending at about noon. The Rabbi welcomes input from all those attending.
Lunch with the Rabbi
Once a month, the rabbi welcomes congregants to join him at a local restaurant for a delicious lunch and discussion. The group has been meeting at Cafe Stravaganza. Topics include "Israel Today," "Jewish Teachings on War," "Jewish forms of Prejudice."
Time: Thursdays at 12 PM
Cost: $18.00 (meal charge)
Visiting scholars will be scheduled (approximately 2-3 times a year) to join us and to share their expertise with us. The exact schedule will vary, perhaps including Friday Shabbat dinner with a presentation, perhaps a Saturday morning presentation, perhaps a discussion with the Saturday Shabbat service, perhaps Saturday evenings with Havdalah and a dessert buffet. Sometimes the scholar will offer a fourth presentation on Sunday mornings as well. These events are open to everyone, but there may be a small fee for non-CBI members for Sabbath dinner.
The Jewish Book Group meets once a month to discuss books selected by the members. E-mail notices about book selections are sent to group members, who are responsible for obtaining their own copies.
Time: Second Tuesday of each month at 1:30 PM.
Location: Meetings are held in the homes of group members.
Participants are encouraged top sign up at the Temple office.
