CBI Welcomes Cantor Sharon Brown-Levy July 1st!

Cantor Sharon Brown-Levy joins our synagogue after serving as Cantor of Temple Emanu-El of West Essex in Livingston, NJ for eight years. In addition to those years, she offers an additional eleven years as Cantor of Temple Beth-El of St. Petersburg, FL, and membership since 2006 in the New Jersey Cantors Concert Ensemble (NJCCE), the nation's oldest established organization of networking cantors.


CBI's Memorial Wall Honors Our Loved Ones

Honoring the memory of a departed loved one is an important facet of Jewish life. At CBI there are many different opportunities to honor our parents, grandparents, or other family members who have passed on. One very special way to do this is to place his or her name on a plaque on the Memorial Wall of our Retreat Room, adjoining the Sanctuary.
