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.
In order to best fulfill the needs of our congregation moving forward, we are asking each adult CBE and UT member in your household to take a few minutes to answer our Census. This information will help us get to know you even better, and will allow our clergy and staff to better serve our community, as we plan for the future.
CBE’s Chesed Team enables CBE members to support one another in their times of joy and sorrow. Members organize meals for those who are ill and for families with new babies. We bring care packages to members in times of celebration and sorrow. We run errands or shop for homebound members and call members who are ill or feeling alone. In the event of a death, clergy and lay leaders are available to lead and organize shiva minyan services for mourners, on Zoom or in their homes when it’s safe to do so.
Join us as a number of Brooklyn’s minyanim, synagogues, and organizations come together for Shavuot Across Brooklyn, an all-night teaching and learning celebration commemorating the giving of the Ten Commandments. This year we will have some in-person learning and some virtual learning as a hybrid tikkun.
We are so excited to begin welcoming a limited number of CBE members back into our sanctuary on Saturday mornings for Shabbat services. Registration will take place on a week-to-week basis, starting Mondays at 10AM. Click the link below for full details and to sign up.
