Monthly Mitzvahs Social Action Opportunities for the Month of October

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed individuals can change the world. In fact, it's the only thing that ever has."
- Margaret Mead

Congregation B’nai Israel was built on a foundation of service to the community. CBI offers a variety of opportunities for our members to perform mitzvot each month throughout South Florida and beyond through our social action arm, the Kantor Family Center for Justice (KFCJ).

World Animal Month is observed throughout the month of October

JNF-USA Bomb Shelter Painting Project

As rockets are aimed at our friends and family in the South of Israel, Jewish National Fund-USA stands with the communities facing constant threat of rocket attack, along the border with Gaza and throughout Israel. Please join CBI in supporting Jewish National Fund-USA, which is on the ground every day helping our brothers and sisters in Israel, by beautifying and painting a bomb shelter.

Join us in our CBI efforts to support the land and people of Israel. We look forward to dedicating this special shelter with you, our CBI family!
