New Current COVID-19 Policy
CBI continues to welcome everyone who is fully vaccinated and children under 13 whether vaccinated or not, to attend in-person indoor services and activities. Children that are not vaccinated are required to wear masks. Those fully vaccinated are now by order of the County of Monterey mandated to wear masks indoors other than when eating or drinking. Unvaccinated adults are welcome to attend all outdoor CBI events wearing masks.

Chanukah
Celebration

Friday, December 3
6:00 PM

Join us for an evening of candle lighting, Chanukah songs, stories, and games. Followed by an abbreviated Shabbat service. Each family is encouraged to bring their own Chanukiah (extra points if it is homemade!). Please call the CBI office at 624-2015 if you plan to join us for our Chanukah celebration. We hope you will enjoy your Chanukah meals in your homes either before you join us or following the short service.

Happy Hanukkah

Endowment
Fund

One of the most important efforts currently underway at our Synagogue is to grow our Endowment Fund. The basic costs to run CBI keep going up year after year. An Endowment Fund of $2 million dollars would generate enough income each year to keep our Synagogue financially viable for the generations to come.
Please consider performing a year-end Mitzvah and contribute something to the Endowment Fund this year.
As with any tax strategy, you should consult your tax professional.
