High Holidays

The High Holidays are a special and busy time for any synagogue. At CBI, we strive to offer services and programming to enhance your family‚Äôs experience.  Religious services, youth programming, babysitting, teen programs and community activities are offered throughout the High Holiday period at both CBI and the JCC (Jewish Community Center of Central New Jersey) down the block.   There are plenty of opportunities to participate in our services, whether it's by opening the ark, chanting Torah, reading an English or Hebrew passage, or singing in the choir.

The High Holiday Committee works closely with Rabbi Tilman and Cantor Axelrod to ensure that services and programs run smoothly, providing spiritual, enjoyable and memorable experiences for all our members.

CBI offers several Membership categories, including a reduced-price Young Member option that includes High Holiday tickets. For more information on joining our CBI family, click here.

New to synagogue life? Want to check out CBI? Please join us on Erev Rosh Hashanah for a Family Service, open to the community. All ages are welcome and no ticket purchase is necessary - just RSVP here!
