Support CBI


Membership is the most important and most impactful way to support the Temple. This money is used to pay our rabbinic staff, maintain the facility, support our holiday celebrations and most of our programming.


The Temple budget is never sufficient for accommodating all of the many worthwhile activities and deserving causes in which our Congregation family engages. Your contributions are essential for helping to fund these important activities. There are many reasons to make a donation to the funds listed below:

  • to congratulate friends or family on a special Simchah

  • gratitude as you celebrate a Simchah

  • to remember the Yahrzeit of a relative or friend

  • to show your sympathy for someone’s passing

  • to help your congregation for any reason

  • appreciation for rabbinic and congregational support at a life-cycle event
