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.

Lay Leadership

Congregation Beth Israel has a long tradition of lay leadership in our worship settings. Members are invited to lead Shacharit (the morning service), lead Musaf (the additional service), read or chant a section of Torah, chant a Haftarah, offer a D'var Torah (thoughtful reflections on an aspect of the Torah portion), or welcome attendees by being an Usher. If you think you might like to try one of these roles but could use some personal instruction, please contact Rabbi Tom Gutherz at (434) 295-6382, ext. 401
