All services are casual - in atmosphere and dress- and appropriate for all ages.  

Our prayerbook provides English transliteration for the Hebrew prayers, and English translations and readings bring home their contemporary significance.  (If you'd like to get better acquainted with the Hebrew and the melodies, recordings are available here.)  

Check out our upcoming Shabbat activities below.  

Shabbat in October

Music Shabbat and Sukkot, Friday, October 6,  7:30 P.M.

Double your pleasure--Music Shabbat and Sukkot!  Join the CBH Singers and Rabbi Orden for an evening service filled with song.  Shake the lulav, inhale the scent of the etrog, and welcome autumn in the sukkah.  (See all our Sukkot events)

Sukkot Yizkor Service, 7:00 pm, followed by Simchat Torah/Shabbat at 7:30 pm, October 13

We'll conclude Sukkot with a brief Yizkor service to remember loved ones, and then--a joyous celebration of the Torah as we begin the cycle of readings anew with dancing, singing, and a chance to get up close and personal to the parchment. And to add to the joy, we'll be naming Paula Ehrenberg and Daniel Horner's daughter, Morgan Elizabeth.

Shabbat Morning Service, October 14, 9:30 am

Ben Gottesman will become a bar mitzvah during a service he will lead with Rabbi Orden, lay cantor Steve Wetter and the CBH Singers. B’nai mitzvah at CBH are not private events; they are the congregation’s celebration of Shabbat, of community and of our young people’s achievement. It feels so good to be part of it; plan on attending. 

Shabbat B'Yachad (Togetherness Shabbat) Friday, October 20, 7:30 P.M.

The evening begins with a delicious catered dinner from Herb 'n Spice (free of charge, thanks to the generosity of the Ticknors) at 6:30 p.m., followed by a service at 7:30 during which Archie Rand, the artist who painted our new mural over the door of the sanctuary/social hall, will explain the symbolism behind the images.

Social Justice Shabbat, Friday, October 27, 7:30 P.M.

Join our usual warm and intimate Friday evening service and a discussion about whether and when our congregation should take positions on public policy issues.

New Member Music Shabbat, Friday, November 3, 7:30 pm

A special welcome for our newest members, followed by an especially festive Oneg Shabbat.
