Dear CBI Family and Friends,
Our community remains dynamic and connected as we continue to navigate the changing pandemic safety protocols. We have now happily returned to enjoy our home in shul, with weekday and Shabbat in-person services, monthly communal Shabbat lunches, multiple Chanukah celebrations, alongside rich online educational programming.
Your participation and engagement have been critical in keeping us connected. This year, more than ever, we need your continued generosity and support in meeting our 2022 Phone-a-thon goal of $30,000. We have much to look forward to in the coming months and none of it is possible without your support.
The 2022 CBI Phone-a-thon will take place on Sunday morning, January 16th. We ask that you increase your giving over last year’s donation if your resources permit it. Know that any amount you can give will be appreciated. If you want to have this donation credited to your 2021 tax return, please consider giving before the end of December.
Donors will be recognized for their support in five categories, according to their level of giving:
$18 – $179: Supporters
$180 – $499: Guardians
$500 – $999: Sustainers
$1,000 – $1,999: Pillars
$2000 – $4,999: Innovators
You can make your donation in one of five ways:
- Donate online below
