Greetings from the new president, me, Cara Lieb!  I am grateful to the congregation for giving me the opportunity to serve our community.  I pledge to do so to the best of my ability with love--and with humor.  Together we will continue to build on the groundwork laid by my very able predecessors: Todd Hornik, Malina Breaux, Joyce Kapp, Bee Epstein-Shepherd, and on and on.  At the core of our endeavors is our Mission to be a welcoming and inclusive center for Jewish life in the Monterey Peninsula area.  Please let me know how I can help this mission become a reality in your family's life.  Warm regards, Cara

We need YOU! - Oneg Hosts 

Oneg receptions have become an integral part of how we build our CBI sense of community and by volunteering to host; you are helping us do this. However, we are in need of hosts for the coming weeks ahead.   To participate is easy and only requires you to volunteer by letting us know. 

Help keep this wonderful tradition alive by hosting an Oneg in memory of a loved one, in honor of a special person or life-cycle event.  Contact the CBI office today to schedule this simple yet meaningful mitzvah.
We are grateful to our members during the past fiscal year, who have made our Friday night Oneg's a beautiful experience.  Thank you for making the close of our Erev Shabbat Services extra special.

      Please give to the High Holy Days Food Drive
to help those in need.
You can make a difference!
