Why CBT?

With gratitude--B'nai Tikvah offers me an open minded spiritual home filled with music, friendship,  classes that promote love of Judaism, warm, welcoming, thoughtful and musically beautiful Shabbat and holiday services and a place to continue my commitment to social justice.

We joined B’nai Tikvah to find a community in which my children could establish their Jewish identities and go through their B’nai Mitzvah experience. Little did I anticipate, that many years later, I would have an adult B’nai Mitzvah service of my own that strengthened my own bond to Judaism. I am grateful to have found this community in which my family has been able to learn and grow.

Our family loves CBT because it is a warm and welcoming community with which we can share the Jewish year and our family's Jewish journey. We also have found the mix of Conservative and Reform Judaism to be a wonderful blend of the new and old in Judaism. This is our local Jewish home!

We found our “Jewish home” in 1992, and have been “singing” about it ever since. B'nai Tikvah is a most caring temple, with prayer and music, filling our hearts and souls!

We came, we saw, we were conquered by the welcoming, warmth of everyone we encountered at B'nai Tikvah, by Rabbi Gutterman's words and Cantor Chabon's voice.  We felt at home.

We started our temple search at CBT and never made it anywhere else. We have found a diverse, warm community that is allowing our family to strengthen and deepen our Jewish identity.

I never thought I’d be the president of a synagogue, but something about B’nai Tikvah got me involved - and keeps me involved. Our warm and welcoming community can inspire... come take a look!!
