JND October Shabbat

Friday, October 7, 7:30 PM
CBI/ Pollin Chapel (1972 NW Flanders Street)

Our first service this fall all on our own! We had a great summer joining the congregation at Shabbat on the Plaza, but we are so excited to get back to our roots. Services are filled with a great mix of traditional prayers, modern songs, and insightful discussions. As usual, we will walk together for drinks and snacks after services. Parking is available on Flanders and NW 19th.


Break the Fast with Moishe House and Jews Next Dor

Wednesday, October 12, 6:30 PM
CBI Youth Lounge (1972 NW Flanders)

Yom Kippur is one of the holiest and hungriest days of the year. So, join Moishe House and Jews Next Dor as we break the fast with breakfast type food! (See what we did there?! The word breakfast comes from break the fast!). Meet us at the Youth Lounge at Congregation Beth Israel. We will be providing a traditional spread of bagels with schmear, kugel, and much more! Feel free to bring something to contribute (like dessert!). Congregation Beth Israel has generously opened a space for us, but the event will be hosted by Moishe House and JND. The event is open to anyone.

CBI, Sukkah on the Plaza (1972 NW Flanders)

Have an opportunity to shake the lulav and etrog and determine your favorite kind of beer. Sarah Phillips will be leading a short service. Wear appropriate clothing for potentially cold weather!
