Share the unprecedented joy as three of our teens read torah and become adults in the eyes of our community!

Kabbalat Shabbat at CBH

Shabbat is welcomed all year long at CBH. Each Friday evening we welcome Shabbat as a community in a variety of ways. Check the CBH calendar on the homepage for weekly service types and times.

All of our Shabbat services are casual - in atmosphere and dress. Everyone of all ages is welcome to attend.

The entire community is welcome, and encouraged, to attend services when a Bar/Bat Mitzvah is being celebrated.
