Children and Services

Even the youngest congregants and guests are welcome at all service at CBE. Children attending with parents are welcome to use the children's books found at the back of the sanctuary. Also, during services a play area for young children accompanied by a parent has been set up in the school wing. On Saturday mornings, all children present are invited to join the Rabbi and service leaders on the bima for the latter part of the service.

In addition, we have special children's service for all age groups; see below for description and schedule.
