Hatha Yoga Classes

CBH member  and certified yoga instructor Pamela Erens leads this series of classes for beginner to intermediate practitioners.  Instruction will be adapted to meet each participant where he or she is.  

Yoga is a time-honored practice that is both physical and contemplative. It gives us an opportunity to build strength and flexibility, but also to develop inner calm and gain some perspective on our hurried, striving, materialistic contemporary lives. In that sense, CBH is a perfect place to come together and experience it!

Fee for the six-week course is a $54 donation to CBH.  Yoga mat required.  More information and registration here.  

Ten Words of Belonging

They go by many names: The Ten Commandments, The Ten Words, The Ten Sayings or, in Hebrew, just The Ten—The Aseret. What they really are is a covenant to which all who accept them belong. In this monthly series, Rabbi Orden will guide us to a deeper understanding of these words that bind us to one another, and in the process, we’ll get to know each other better.

Fountain of Hope Storytelling Project

Our first class of storytelling workshop participants

Members of CBH and Fountain Baptist Church told true stories from their lives at the first live event coming out of the Fountain of Hope project.  The audience was entranced by the beautiful poignant, funny, heartbreaking, and inspiring stories.  The project continues, and you, too, can have the chance to tell your own unique story.

Tour of New Exhibit: "Auschwitz.  Not long ago. Not far away."

Sunday, December 8th, 2:00 pm

For the first time, a traveling exhibition dedicated to the historical significance of Auschwitz is being presented to a U.S. audience. CBH congregants will  tour the exhibit at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC. Plans are in process for possible group lunch in NYC before the tour and carpooling from CBH.

This groundbreaking exhibition brings together more than 700 original objects and 400 photographs from over 20 institutions and museums around the world. Auschwitz. Not long ago. Not far away. is the most comprehensive exhibition dedicated to the history of Auschwitz and its role in the Holocaust ever presented in North America, and an unparalleled opportunity to confront the singular face of human evil—one that arose not long ago and not far away. The most significant site of the Holocaust, Auschwitz was not a single entity, but a complex of 48 concentration and extermination camps, at which 1 million Jews—and tens of thousands of others—were murdered. The exhibition explores the dual identity of the camp as a physical location—the largest documented mass murder site in human history—and as a symbol of the borderless manifestation of hatred and human barbarity.
