Come and join the conversation! Come and rejoice and learn and celebrate and feel the vitality of our CBS community.

"Turn it and turn it, for everything is in it."

These immortal words about Torah from Pirke Avot express the powerful idea that the act of discovery . . . and self discovery . . . is open to all of us. Each of us is called, is challenged, to find his or her place within our tradition. And that tradition is rich with possibility . . . "everything is in it."

We look forward to another year of stimulating and fulfilling programs centered on the many facets of Jewish learning.
