Food 4 Thought

Food 4 Thought lifelong learning programs are designed for CBI's adult members. Registration is required for planning purposes.


Food 4 Thought sessions will be in person at CBI twice a month, one Tuesday evening and one Sunday morning. Each program will feature one of three different topics: Jewish Update (current Jewish affairs), Israeli Book Club (translations of Israeli books), or Texting Jewish (Jewish text study).

Schmooze School


Three Sunday mornings a month, CBI presents Schmooze School. It is an opportunity for CBI parents / caregivers to spend time together while also learning about a variety of topics. At Schmooze School the parents are also the teachers. We’re inviting congregants to volunteer to teach about topics that are of interest to them relating to parenting.

For a complete list of upcoming dates, visit the CBI Calendar Schmooze School page.
