Your gift supports adults in their personal Jewish growth by providing engaging opportunities for Jewish thought, ritual, spirituality, and culture. You may contribute to one or more of the following:
Adult Education Committee: This committee sets the goals and direction of our adult programming and helps to coordinate the calendar of adult learning activities including lectures on selected Jewish topics and films relevant to the Jewish experience. Contributions to this fund support CBI's efforts to offer diverse and stimulating programs of educational or cultural value.
Caring Committee: This committee provides support to members of our Jewish community who are experiencing life transitions such as childbirth, illness, or death. Our dedicated volunteers visit hospitalized members of the community who would like a visitor, assist with rides to the doctor or to CBI or community events, help with shiva arrangements if needed, and so much more. Contributions to this Fund support the ability of this committee to meet its modest expenses and to enhance its services.
Cemetery Committee: Contributions to this Fund support the maintenance and general upkeep of the Hebrew Cemetery.
Chevra Kadisha: The role of the Chevrah Kadisha (Holy Society) is to show honor to the dead by preparing the body for burial according to Jewish custom. Contributions to this Fund support the work of the Chevrah Kadisha in honoring the dead by providing a traditional process of preparation of the deceased prior to the funeral.
Chutzpah! Chorus: The Chutzpah! Chorus meets weekly to sing a wide variety of styles of Jewish choral music in a fun, informal atmosphere. The chorus holds periodic public performances and also sings during selected religious services. Contributions to this Fund support the purchase of music and other expenses incurred by the Chorus.
Oneg and Kiddush Fund: Contributions to this fund help support special receptions and meals like the Annual Congregational Meeting, Erev Rosh HaShanah, the breaking of the fast following Yom Kippur, and more. If you would like to host or sponsor a particular oneg or kiddush, please contact Lukas Holldorf.
