The High Holy Days are here!

Congregation Beth Shalom, Rabbi  David Weizman , and Rabbi  Danielle Upbin happily welcome you to join together to reflect, renew and rejoice in the new year.

We're looking forward to seeing you for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur & throughout the holiday season.

With gratitude to the June Baumgardner Gelbart Foundation and its trustees, CBS has received a grant to live stream our services!

The new system has been installed and is up and running. The camera itself is stationary with a direct focus on the bimah.

We'll be streaming this coming Shabbat morning and again for the Rosh Hashanah Services.

Sharing this link with your away-from-home family members and those physically unable to attend in person, allows us to stay connected with our CBS family.

Jewish Women's Getaway with Rabbi Danielle Upbin
Hello Women of CBS!
Registration is now open for the Women’s Getaway, spiritual retreat at Camp Ramah Darom in Georgia.
The retreat this year will be November, 11-14. We're excited to announce that Rabbi Danielle will again be joining us to bring deep and meaningful learning, yoga, and music. Bethanne Weiss will also be returning to help us Move our Assets. We have some amazing artists signed on to bring jewelry making and other art as we express ourselves creatively. 

Check out the  Ramah Darom Jewish Women's Getaway 2018 page  to learn more about the retreat and register. If you have any questions or need help registering, feel free to email me-I am always happy to help. I hope to see you again this fall as we rejuvenate our mind, body and soul together. Early bird registration ends September 4th. 

I am currently identifying possible flights to Atlanta as well as limousine service from the Atlanta airport to Ramah Darom. Please let me know by September 30th  if you’re planning to attend so I can include you in our travel plans. 

I hope you’ll consider attending this amazing spiritual and healing retreat.
