World AIDS Day Shabbat 2019
World AIDS Day unites people the world over in commemoration, support, and struggle. Chazak: the Red Ribbon Team at CBST envisions a congregation that is comfortable with the reality of HIV/AIDS within our community and embraces all members without stigma or prejudice.
Our World AIDS Day Shabbat service memorializing fellow congregants and beloved family and friends who have died of AIDS, may all their memories be for a blessing.

Attendance at CBST's services is always open to all, always without charge.
The core of CBST's religious life is our weekly Kabbalat Shabbat service. Service leadership is shared among congregants, Senior Rabbi Sharon Kleinbaum, Assistant Rabbi Yael Rapport, and our Cooperberg-Rittmaster Rabbinical interns, and Cantorial intern. Music Director and pianist, Joyce Rosenzweig directs the CBST Community Chorus on a regular basis. CBST's own prayer book, "With All Your Heart" incorporates Hebrew prayers, English readings, and both traditional and modern songs. A drash is delivered each week by one of the Rabbis, an intern, a member of the congregation, or on occasion by a special guest. The Oneg that follows each service provides an opportunity to meet new people and connect with long-standing friends. Services are livestreamed on https://www.facebook.com/BeitSimchatTorah. All are always welcome to CBST services, always without charge.
