CBE High Holy Days 2020/5781

This year our services will be held via Zoom and livestream. The Zoom links are available to CBE members only, however the livestream is open to all. Because we have a limit of 1,000 screens on Zoom, we are asking all Zoom participants to please have your video turned on — the idea is for us all to see one another and be together. Of course, if you prefer, you can tune in through the livestream on our website or on Facebook.

Are you a CBE member who still needs Zoom links to our High Holy Days services? Click here to log in to your MyCBE account and click on the “High Holy Days Zoom Links” tile in the Member Center.

*Services marked with an asterisk will be available via Zoom only.
