Black Lives Matter
Friday, June 12, 6:30 pm,
via Facebook livestream
Beginning this year, CBST will dedicate one of our Pride Shabbatot to lifting up and celebrating LGBTQ Jews of Color in our community and around the world. For this, our inaugural LGBTQ Jews of Color Pride Shabbat, we will highlight the Black Jewish experience through the teachings of several CBST members--Narda Alcorn, Boysie Dikobe, and Cantorial Intern David Fair--and special musical selections throughout the service.

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. When we are back in our Home at West 30th Street, we will once again enjoy gathering for the Oneg (delight) that follows each service providing an opportunity to meet new people and connect with long-standing friends over delicious desserts. Services are livestreamed HERE. All are always welcome to CBST services, always without charge.
