    "Our Torah is clear. It teaches that every human being, created in the Divine image, has infinite worth and is fundamentally equal to every other (Genesis 1:26, Mishna Sanhedrin 4:5). It teaches that indeed we are our brothers’ keepers (Genesis 4:9). It teaches that the Holy One hears the cry of the oppressed (Exodus 22:22). And it commands us, 'Do not stand by while your neighbor’s blood is shed' (Leviticus 19:16)."—From Rabbi Rachel Timoner's "My Thoughts on This Moment"

    The Jewish value of tikkun olam, healing the world, is at the heart of CBE’s identity.

    CBE's Dismantling Racism Team has formed an Antiracism Working Group as part of their ongoing efforts. To learn more, please email cbedismantlingracismteam@cbebk.org.

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.
