Rabbi Anat Moskowitz

Welcome to Congregation B'nai Torah. Please join us for services on the second and fourth Friday of each month. Guests are always welcome.

Tashlich update

Due to construction, we cannot have Tashlich at England Park. We will be carpooling to Wolff Run park at 76th & Sheridan. Parents must drive their own children unless arrangements have been made with the Rabbi. Please meet at the CBT parking lot at 1:25pm and we will all drive over. Thank you.

Our membership is diverse in age and background, allowing us to be dynamic, innovative and flexible. We welcome interfaith and non-traditional families and value the active participation of our members in our educational, ritual and social life. Everyone matters.

Interfaith

Congregation B'nai Torah embraces interfaith families. We strongly encourage the non-Jewish spouse/partner to participate in all aspects of our community. At Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, the non-Jewish parent is just as involved with the service as the Jewish parent. A strong community makes a stronger connection to Judaism.

Social Action / Mitzvah Committee – Organizes community social action projects and community responses to members in need.

Book Group

CBT's book group meets on the first Saturday of every other month to discuss a current book over a potluck dinner. The reading list is chosen based on members' recommendations and must have a Jewish author, Jewish character and/or Jewish theme and must have been written in the past five years. Since 2000, the book group has read a variety of books and the informal discussions are fun whether or not you're read the book.
