HIGH HOLY DAYS 5781 / 2020
All are always welcome. Always free of charge.
Celebrate Shabbat and the Festivals throughout the Year!
NER TAMID (Eternal Light): CBST preserved our cherished traditions as well as our innovations - the bold pursuit of social justice, inspiring religious observance, pastoral care, educational programs, and social activities that serve our diverse community. Legacy gifts—bequests, trusts, annuities, retirement and insurance benefactor plans, gifts of real estate, and the like—significantly enhance our ability to implement all that we stand for and strive for. You can leave a lasting legacy and create a meaningful tribute. Also, consider a Charitable Gift Annuity offered in collaboration with UJA-Federation of NY (offering tax benefits now, and lifetime income). EMAIL firstname.lastname@example.org to advise us that you have remembered CBST in your estate plans and approve acknowledgement as a Ner Tamid in the Yom Kippur publication. Learn more...
The High Holy Days frame a uniquely intimate, yet communal experience of holiness in our lives. This year, given the realities of the COVID-19 world, it will not be safe to hold services in person. We will share the Days of Awe as an international CBST community online, creating beautiful and meaningful spiritual experiences.
