CBE is a spiritual, cultural, and intellectual hub for Jewish life

Congregation Beth Elohim, fondly known as CBE, offers authentic, meaningful and outside the box Jewish experiences for those in our Brooklyn community and beyond.

We are deeply committed to education for all ages, community-building, spiritual life, and social justice. We are inspired to learn about our tradition while we engage with the present and positively impact our future. Our Reform congregation welcomes seekers from all Jewish movements, from other faiths, and at all levels of Jewish experience, including those who are new to our traditions and those who are questioning.

Art Shabbat

This year, we’ve created a comprehensive ART Shabbat. We’ll come together on Friday and Saturday to eat, drink, pray, schmooze, and, most importantly, see some art created by the incredibly talented CBE community! And if you can’t make that, there’s still time to view the art on Sunday.
