Make a difference, build community,
and have a blast!


Join us for Mitzvah Day, an annual event at CBI that honors the spirit of both tikkum olam and tzedakah. We guarantee you will: work on a project that tangibly helps others; meet and connect with other members of CBI; and get the opportunity to be seen in the ever-stylish and very recognizable CBI bright blue Mitzvah shirt. We’ll all meet at the Temple at 9:00 AM for a delicious breakfast prepared by our Sisterhood chefs, followed by a brief social justice program. We will then head off to our projects, either at the synagogue or off site. This is a congregation-wide event. It is also a religious school day with parent participation – no drop offs please. Though teachers will be assigned to various projects, we encourage you to sign up for the project(s) that works best for you and your family.

Hineinu, our ongoing commitment to strengthen our community and recognize the kedusha (sanctity) of one another, provides opportunities and experiences that will bring us closer to one another. Working together, both inside and outside the dome, we create ways for our congregants to find connections, create relationships, and nurture and support one another and build community. At CBI we are saying, “Hineinu, We are here, here together!”
