CBI Shares Shabbat
Friday, February 3
On one special night we will share Shabbat, make connections, and create community in the homes of our congregants. We hope you will be a part of it as we come together to light the candles, say the prayers, enjoy Shabbat food and each other’s company. Please participate in Shabbat in our homes, either as hosts or guests.

Jews and the Spanish Civil War: On the Frontier of the Fight Against Fascism
Wednesday, February 1, 7:00 PM
Presenters: Ron Silver, Eric Kimmel, and Jeff Kisseloff
Ron Silver, Eric Kimmel, and Jeff Kisseloff will relate the history of the first war to confront fascism (1936-1939) and the American Jews who volunteered to fight for the Spanish Republic in the Abraham Lincoln Battalion of the International Brigade. The typical American volunteer was Jewish and was often a communist, a trade unionist, or a student at the City College of New York. Fascist General Franco, supported by Hitler and Mussolini, prevailed and American volunteers received a cold welcome on their return to an America not yet ready to recognize the danger of fascism. As background, consider reading the recently published history “Spain in Our Hearts,” by Adam Hochschild, which describes the experiences of individual American volunteers.
