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.

Why Join?

Kabbalat Shabbat and Shabbat morning services occur every Friday evening and Saturday morning, supplemented by holiday services throughout the year.

For our youngest members, we offer Tot Shabbat services and a preschool program.

Religious School
For school-aged children, Religious School and Hebrew School offer a comprehensive Jewish education. 

Youth Activities
Complementing our Family and Youth Services, our active youth groups keep our teens engaged in Jewish life in Charlottesville and beyond. 

Adult Education
Adult education opportunities abound in the form of short courses, lectures, films, and Beit Midrash (text discussion) sessions.

Caring and Comfort
During times of illness or death, members of the CBI Caring Committee offer comfort in the form of visits or assistance with shiva minyanim.

Organized opportunities to engage in mitzvot are available year-round through the work of various committees and groups.

We invite you to get in touch with any member of the synagogue Board of Directors, Executive Director Anita Boles, or Rabbi Tom Gutherz, for more information or to discuss how you can become involved.
