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.
We are so excited for Sukkot and Simchat Torah! Meet us in the CBE Sukkah outside the sanctuary building, and check out all of our joyous Sukkot and Simchat Torah gatherings coming up.
The ECC is excited to resume our Terrific Twos Classes! Our 26 week program is designed for children aged 18-26 months and their grown up. Classes are led by experienced early childhood teachers and allow your child the opportunity to participate in a classroom environment along with their trusted adult. Children will be able to socialize with others while engaging with age-appropriate activities and materials in a classroom setting. Registration opens September 13!

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.
