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.
The ECC at CBE is excited to open tours to prospective students and families starting in late October. Applications for the 2022-23 school year will be available on November 3. Click on the photo above and sign up for a tour today!
Take a look back at our joyous Sukkot and Simchat Torah celebrations. Together, we danced and sang at Eastern Parkway, Garfield Place, our sanctuary, and Grand Army Plaza.
If you missed Rabbi Green sharing excerpts from a delightful voicemail he received from Susan Levy while he was on vacation, or Rabbi Kolin invoking the Avengers to remind us of the importance of gathering with purpose, or Rabbi Timoner inspiring us to find radical amazement in all of the beauty that surrounds us in this world, click the link over their name to watch and/or read each of their Rosh Hashanah sermons.
Our CBE Staff has grown considerably during the past few months! We were thrilled to welcome several new faces to our already outstanding team. Take a moment to get acquainted with your CBE staff members on our "Clergy and Staff" page. We encourage you to read about them and get in touch with any questions or just to welcome them to our community.
