Mountaintop Minyan July 1st, 2017



The Mountaintop Minyans are back!
Saturday morning July 1st we’ll meet at the Folk Art Center along the parkway at 9:30. We’ll form carpools and drive up to the Craggy Gardens area where we’ll hike for about a mile (round trip) along the Snowball trail. We’ll return to this lovely rock which is located close to the parking area where Rabbi Meiri will lead us in a short service. Those that choose not to do the trail walk can join us only 70 yards from their car. We should return to the Folk Art Center by around noon.

Bring the whole family and well behaved dogs as well. Questions to Marty Stickle at 273-9041

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!
Longevity! Goundbreaking of Religious School in 1954
Building out the lower level for our Religious School
