CBE’s Response to Coronavirus

Dear CBE Community,

We love you and we are here for you. If you are in quarantine, if you are ill, or if you are worried and want to talk to someone, our clergy and chesed teams can help. Contact us at info@cbebk.org or call (718) 768-3814. In the event of a life cycle emergency, please call our 24/7 emergency line at (718) 360-4732.

Please follow CDC and Health Department guidelines for self-quarantine and act out of abundance of caution. If in doubt, sit it out. If a member of your household has any flu symptoms or has traveled to a State Department Level 2 or 3 country, or if you have any reason to believe that your health is at risk, we will wave to you from the livestream. If you haven’t checked out the livestream before, this is a great time to start.

You will see hand sanitizer and wipes throughout the building. Please use them. We have added extra staff to our facilities team to help with additional cleaning. Throughout the day we are wiping down high volume surface areas such as doorknobs and bannisters.

Please also regularly check our calendar for updates on regular programming and events.

Take the CBE challenge—let’s see if we can make our community feel just as warm and friendly as always without handshakes, touching or hugs. And remember the wisdom of Psalm 24: Who ascends the mountain of the Lord? Those with clean hands!

We can do this CBE!


The Clergy, Staff, and Board of CBE
