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.
Michael Pollan joins us to discuss How to Change Your Mind, which was selected by the New York Times Book Review as one of the 10 Best Books of 2018.
Join us as a host of Brooklyn's minyanim, synagogues, and organizations come together for an all-night celebration of the holiday of Shavuot, commemorating the giving of the Ten Commandments.
Join us for a conversation with Nathan Englander, author of the recent novel, kaddish.com!
The CBE Respite Shelter will open for the 2019 season on Sunday, May 19. Located in the Rotunda of the Sanctuary Building, the shelter is open 6 nights a week and provides 12 homeless men with a warm, safe place to sleep, along with a hot, protein-based meal.
