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.

High Holy Days

Most services are held at CBI, however, during the High Holy Days when services are most heavily attended, they are held at Trinity Presbyterian Church at 3101 Fontaine Ave Extended, Charlottesville, VA 22903, which provides ample seating along with onsite parking and ease of entry.

Tot Services are appropriate for all children, but specifically for those under the age of 6. Family Services are appropriate for children Kindergarten and up. Babysitting is available during Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur services by reservation only. To make babysitting arrangements, contact the CBI Preschool office (434) 295-6382, ext. 501.

Congregation Beth Israel has had the pleasure of using the machzor,  Mishkan Hanefesh over the last few years. This new text has a wide array of prayer options. Please consider helping CBI defray the cost of these new machzorim by purchasing a set for personal use and also consider purchasing one or more sets for the congregation. The cost of the set is $36 and is a discounted price from the usual purchase price. Opportunities for dedication will be available. If you'd like to donate, please fill out this order form.

If you would like CBI to supervise your children during High Holiday Services at Trinity Presbyterian Church, please contact Jill Abbey-Clark (434-295-6382, ext. 501) or Clara Crider (434-295-6382, ext. 502). Childcare is free of charge, but registration is required. Sorry, no drop-ins.

If you are able to volunteer and help supervise the children, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Jill Abbey-Clark (434-295-6382, ext. 501).
