CBE Style Guide

Quick Links: Logos ● Consistent Spelling


Both internal and external documents, presentations, and especially publicity items and forms should generally have a CBE logo on them. Auxiliary organizations (Sisterhood, Men's Club, BEECCPA and Hazak) are welcome to feature their own logos, and preferably also include a CBE logo if there is space.

Acceptable CBE Logos are shown below; to download, right-click (PC) or click and hold (Mac) and save/download. Or you may be able to copy/paste directly to your document. NOTE: they may be situations where the light blue/grey does not show; contact [email protected] for alternatives.

Consistent Spelling

There is no "right" or "wrong" way to spell words that are transliterated from another language, but we strive to be consistent. If you notice a word, name, holiday etc. that is not being spelled consistently in CBE materials and is not on this list, please contact [email protected] so it can be added. Thank you!
