Nourishing our souls by continuously helping others since 1984:
Congregation B’nai Israel was built on a foundation of service to the community. Together as a congregation, we have come together to use our voices and actions in a meaningful way to make a positive difference in our community.
"Three signs identify this people: They are merciful; they are bashful; and they perform deeds of loving-kindness." - Talmud Bavli Massekhet Yevamot 79a

The Impact of CBI Programs:
As someone who came from a very humble and deprived background, I worked my way through the hardships and must give back. Hopefully I can make a difference. CBI helps me by finding the right direction to the disadvantaged.
- Fran Fischer
Every week the volunteers are given two gifts-the blessing of helping others, and the treasure of their friendship and camaraderie through our Sandwich Brigade.
- Debby Schwaber
Volunteering at CBI has introduced me to many of my dearest friends. Through my volunteerism, I am more connected to members, staff and clergy. It’s a very warm feeling, walking on to campus and knowing so many know my name and I theirs. CBI is where my children learned their Jewish heritage and my grandchildren are continuing the tradition.
