Join us for Shabbat Services: Friday at 6:00 pm, Saturday at 9:30 am

Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI) is a welcoming, diverse, and family-friendly synagogue community serving all of Orange County.

 

We are a community of people of all levels of religious observance, those born Jews and Jews by Choice, people of generations, family structures, and walks of life. We are bound together by our love of Judaism and our care for one another.

 

We gather together for every Shabbat and holiday, often following Friday night services with festive dinners, including special evenings for families with young children, families with school-aged children, youth “Shabbat Club” dinners, and discussions with guest speakers.  Each Saturday morning we hold services in our main sanctuary and regularly have additional alternative services, chanting sessions, text study, and youth services. We always share Kiddush lunch as a community (we like to eat- we are Jewish!). And we facilitate Shabbat meals in each other’s homes.

As a central part of our mission as caregivers, we team with interfaith partners to prepare and serve meals for the hungry and homeless, hold Red Cross blood drives, and collect food, clothing, and other items for those in need, and support HIAS’ aid to refugees.  Our Hesed (Caregiving) committee prepares meals in our kitchen and delivers them, along with compassion, to community members in mourning, recovering from illness, welcoming a new baby, or in financial need.
