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.


Congregation Beth Israel follows the Israeli calendar with regard to holiday observances. In practical terms, this means seven (not eight) days of Sukkot are observed, with Simchat Torah and Shemini Atzeret coinciding on the eighth day, Pesach for seven (not eight) days, and Shavuot for one (not two) days. Because of the contrast between the Israeli calendar and the traditional diaspora calendar, during some years, the two will be out of sync by one week with regard to Torah readings on some Shabbatot.
