We are a group of very different people who experience Judaism as a sort of magnetic force drawing us together.  It's one thing we all share in one way or another and in which we can all find the power, inspiration, and knowledge to live our lives fully and with purpose. 


Meet some of our members


Here's how our members describe our community:









Genuine and authentic


Good energy

You don't need to believe in God


As a Reconstructionist synagogue, we make Judaism relevant to our modern lives and strive to create a sense of unity among our diverse community – Jew and non-Jew, men and women, straight and LGBTQ, and people of different ethnicities, beliefs, political stripes, and backgrounds.


  "I looked around the room, and I     realized this is what I love so much   about CBH--these wonderful friends   coming together, celebrating   Shabbat, sharing a meal, singing."  

 --  Pam
