CBOI is a growing and inclusive congregation, enriching and enjoying Jewish life together through Services, Minyan, Men's Club, Sisterhood, Committees, Talmud Class, Online Learning, Tot and Youth programs. Come explore the CBOI Community Organic Garden and Gan Mayim—our very own living waters, unique to  CBOI.

As a modern conservative synagogue, CBOI is proud to continue our tradition of outstanding and affordable Jewish education. Annual Hebrew School Tuition is only $360.00 per student. Students benefit from weekly classes and one-on-one tutoring which enables them to participate avidly in services. Bar/Bat Mitzvah students read with pride directly from our Torah and Haftorah scrolls. 

All are welcome to join our egalitarian family. 

At this time, out of consideration to our membership, our synagogue life is continuing by putting our events, school, and services on zoom.

ISRAEL BONDS

  • Israel Bond purchases by  congregants can benefit our synagogue as well as Israel. Congregants can purchase Israel bonds and donate the bond to the synagogue, thereby fulfilling their charitable contribution to the synagogue. The bond purchase, which may be a charitable contribution (investors must speak to a tax advisor), also is a double mitzvah.
  • Instead of checks and gift cards for gifts - the eMitzvah bond (minimum investment is $36 which can only be purchased online) and the Mazel Tov bond (minimum investment is $100), have the benefit and potential to transform a gift into a mitzvah as well as a learning experience. We can provide printed or electronic information.

·         A collaborative project is taking place with American Friends of Magen David Adom (AFMDA) & Israel Bonds. Our Region has a goal of purchasing at least one Ambulance. The cost of an Ambulance is a $100,000. Individuals can participate by purchasing a minimum $1,000 – 3 year Sabra bond. The bond is registered to AFMDA and when it matures, the proceeds from all bonds that are part of this program equal to $100,000 will purchase an ambulance for Israel. This is another great way to support Israel by doing a double mitzvah. Some synagogues are making it possible for individuals to participate at a smaller amount. Individuals write a check to the synagogue which pools the funds. When the synagogue has received a minimum of $1,000, the synagogue purchases the bond and registers it to AFMDA. Contributions may be tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. A tax advisor should be consulted for details. Information is attached about this program.
