• Purim

    Something's coming...it's Purim at CBE!

    It's going to be a weekend full of festivities for all ages.

    Scroll down to learn more about all of our exciting celebrations this year!

  • Purim Carnival

    Book Drive

    Sponsored by the Youth Social Justice Committee

    Join us at the Purim Carnival to share our community's love of reading by donating a new or gently used book. Books will also be available at the carnival for purchase.

    Through Reach Out and Read (ROAR), volunteers read to pediatric patients at Methodist Hospital and kids get to take the books home.

    This is a great opportunity to talk to your children about tzedakah and giving back to their community - help them pick out a book of their own to donate to a child in the hospital.

    Stop by our table in the ballroom to drop off your gift and decorate a bookmark!

    Can't make the carnival? There will be a book donation box located at the security desk starting on Tuesday, February 18th.

    Preschool through early elementary age books are always needed.
    Books will also be available for purchase at the carnival.
