Worship & Spirituality

Our synagogue is a welcoming home for spiritual exploration. Through a wide range of truly meaningful spiritual experiences, from weekly Shabbat services to the celebration of holidays and life cycle moments with your family, we strive to be a place where exploration and discovery is embraced.

Also important to the worship experience are opportunities to build community and friendships. Shabbat and festival worship at CBHT is joyful and interactive, contemplative and soulful. Each Shabbat we gather together in joy and in friendship while instilling or reinforcing an appreciation of Judaism. Sermon topics range from current events to timely and relevant discussion of the Torah portion, giving new insight into our Jewish tradition and contemporary issues.

CBHT is a warm and inclusive congregation that gives voice to the varied sounds of prayer in our community and we are committed to providing an inclusive, welcoming space. Our congregation is comprised of Jews from more traditional backgrounds, interfaith and non-traditional couples and families, as well as those who may be rediscovering their faith.

Every service is open to the general community and non-members are most welcome at Shabbat and festival services. At each service we strive to create a worship experience that is warm, welcoming, filled with beautiful and varied music, invites active participation and, we hope, is inspiring to all.  We hope you will join us.
