Support CBS Friday Night Lights!

Our sanctuary is an amazing space with its simple tranquility, natural light and openness complemented by the bursts of color from the ark doors. However, our ritual moments are a hodgepodge of non-matching, not in great shape ritual items. And,  in the sanctuary lobby, underneath a beautiful set of festival quilts that were gifted to us, is a bookshelf in need of replacement. We are also noticeably missing a bin for Kippot, and a rack for our Tallitot.

Help us invest in a set of ritual items, bookshelves and ritual item displays to make the foyer just outside the sanctuary as breathtaking as the sanctuary itself. We are calling the campaign "Friday Night Lights", and you can donate to this effort here.

With great joy we invite you to join us this Shavuot in celebration of a special moment in the life of our congregation as we are led in worship by our tenth grade Confirmation students:


Kendal August, Courtney Blumberg, Emily Bruck, Natalie Chace, Eva Drotch, Samantha Edinberg, Jonah Epstein, Samantha Feldman, Ethan Freshman, Michael Greystone, Brett Harmon, Aaron Janecek, Benjamin Main Sobel, Elijah Mecenas, Leah Mintz, Joel Rosen, Benjamin Rosenfeld & Rebecca Sherr

The service begins at 7:00PM

Followed by a special Oneg Chag

 We have lots of groups for people with lots of varied interests.

It’s easy to find others with a common interest when you are part of a big community.

CBS Cares and the legacy of Anita Backer

At the beginning of May, our congregation mourned the passing of one of our founding members, Anita Backer. Just a few weeks earlier, at our 40th anniversary celebratory Shabbat in mid-March, Anita stood front and center, next to Rabbi Debra Hachen, and other founding members who stood beneath a chuppah we created from a tallit that had been commissioned for our congregation (and made with them) by Nancy Katz.

Rabbi Eiduson

A Message from Rabbi Eiduson

A few months ago, our congregation applied to be a host congregation for a new URJ program called CLASP. The URJ Camp Leadership and Synagogue Professional (CLASP) Fellow is part of a national cohort of Jewish young professionals who are dedicated to strengthening ties and maximizing youth engagement throughout all aspects of synagogue and camp life. We were accepted into the program and recently completed the hiring process for Congregation B’nai Shalom’s first CLASP Fellow, Eri Solomon.

Temple President

A Message from Rob

Last year at this time I shared a few thoughts with you in the temple bulletin as “President-Elect.” In the hours, days, weeks, and months after the annual meeting when I officially became President of B’nai Shalom, many of our members reached out to me or took me aside to tell me, “it’s a tough job.” That made me a little nervous. However, almost all of the “tough job” comments were followed by “how can I help?” or “how can I get involved?” and that has made the job of President much easier than I thought it would be.
