Calling all CBI women!  Please come to Shabbat morning services on May 13, which will be a special Women’s Service.  Women of CBI are invited to participate both in designing the service and in leading the service by leading a prayer from our siddur, or offering a new prayer that expresses their perspective as a Jewish woman.  Women are also invited to participate in the Torah and Haftara readings, and to use the Women’s Service as a chance to brush up their reading skills, or to learn to read a few verses for the first time!
