In keeping with the recommended guidelines for social gatherings during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in keeping with the Jewish view that gives primacy to preserving life, CBI has replaced all in-person gatherings at the synagogue building with virtual gatherings. Meetings with one of the rabbis or administrative staff - where all parties are masked - may be made by appointment.

Teen Programs


Beth Israel Temple Youth group (BITY) welcomes all Jewish teenagers. BITY serves ninth through twelfth graders, but seventh and eighth graders are often invited to participate in events as Junior BITY members. Activities include: 

  • Social activities
  • Social action projects
  • Educational activities
  • Congregational involvement 

Senior BITY members can serve on the Youth Group Board, which helps plan local events, and they can participate in regional activities through NFTY-MAR, the North American Federation of Temple Youth's Mid-Atlantic Region.

If you have questions or would like to get involved, please contact Rabbi Rachel Schmelkin, Youth Group Advisor.
