CBHT 125th Anniversary



125th Logo - 4 Color no datesCongregation Beth HaTephila is growing and thriving!  And what makes this so amazing is that it’s happening in a small southern town when most other Jewish communities are declining.

Is it our talented Rabbi?  Our wonderful Religious School?  Our new building?  Our friendly and welcoming members?  Whatever the secret ingredients are, we are proud to be part of the vibrancy and life-enriching experiences that happen at CBHT.

In April 2016, CBHT will commemorated its 125th anniversary.  Hear what some of our members and Rabbi have to say about being part of “Honoring the Past – Celebrating the Present – Building for the Future.”

Wow!  125 years in existence serving the Jewish population of Western North Carolina.

Sustaining! The new look of CBHT!
