Shalom and welcome to Congregation Beth Israel. We are the largest and oldest Synagogue on the Monterey Peninsula. There is a strong sense of community here. We want all our members and visitors to feel comfortable at CBI.
We are a Reform Congregation, a member of the Union For Reform Judaism, in the mainstream of liberal Judaism. As liberal Jews we look to our heritage as a repository of wisdom, insight and numerous possibilities for religious expression.
We welcome you to join us at one of our Friday evening or Saturday morning Shabbat services. To learn more about the Temple through personal contact, please contact our Temple office at (831) 624-2015 or E-mail email@example.com. We would be delighted to go over membership possibilities for you and to answer any questions you might have.
Peace and blessings,
Rabbi Bruce D. Greenbaum

The year 2015 marks the 5th anniversary of CJFF. The films run from March 7 to March 22. It has been fun to watch our festival evolve from five films in 2011 to eight acclaimed featured films from all over the world.
The programs this year are the most exciting ever. In addition to film producer Nancy Spielberg (Above and Beyond) attending from New York, world renowned psychiatrist, Ilan Kutz (Dolphin Boy), traveled from Israel to Carmel just for our festival. Noted San Francisco Jewish historian, Marc Dollinger (American Jerusalem) presented the closing night program.
Details about our panelists, programs, receptions, and films are on the CJFF website by clicking on the tab above or visiting www.carmeljff.org.
Sponsorships make our festival possible. Please consider being a sponsor if you have not done so already. This will all happen again in 2016! Thank you for your support.
