Funds & Dedications

CBI welcomes your generous donations to our many charitable funds that help support our efforts and sustainability.

help make a difference

Tribute Funds

Honor a special occasion, express sympathy, remember a loved one or simply say “Thank You” while supporting the long-term sustainability of CBI. Your gift will have the additional impact of allowing us to provide the best programming, services, social justice, learning, and spiritual opportunities for our members and community. Your contribution can go to the synagogue’s general fund or to any of our special-purpose funds (such as our Memorial Fund, Children's Fund, Youth Scholarship, SLJ Education Fund, Kantor Family Center for Justice Fund or more) that is close to your heart.  

Tree of Life

The Tree of Life enhances the beauty of our Atrium and is nurtured by celebrations of life and joy. An inscribed “leaf” on the Tree of Life is a wonderful way to commemorate a birth, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, confirmation, graduation, wedding, anniversary, or other life cycle.
