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.
Summers at CBE Kids Day Camps are packed with a wide range of fun activities! We offer four unique day camp experiences for campers entering kindergarten through 9th grade.
