Shabbat for Families
One of the most joyous weekly events at CBE, Shir L’Shabbat, held every Saturday at 9:30 AM, is a morning filled with music and celebration. Led by Debbie Brukman, CBE’s extraordinary song leader, and many other musical parents, this is a weekly Shabbat party not to be missed! Please see the Event Calendar for the most up-to-date location information.
Tot Shabbat is on the first Friday of each month at 6:00pm. This spirited service is the perfect way to usher in Shabbat. Beginning with music and prayer, we follow each service with a community dinner. Come enjoy friendly faces, good food, and fun. Please register the Wednesday beforehand for the dinner.
Shira Beshishi (Singing on Friday)
At the heart of the program’s successful community-building is the Israeli- style Shabbat. Growing numbers of families gather for an authentically-Israeli evening of live music, food, poetry, dancing and personal story-sharing. The evening is self-led by the community of Israelis together with American and other immigrant families who are drawn to its spirit and energy. An Israeli song-leader and musician leads families to share blessings or stories about their lives. Kiddush and potluck dinner follows, and then an Israeli-style song-session commonly known as Shira Betzibur (‘singing in community’).
