Updated list of events coming soon.






At our next Shabbat Huddle, we will welcome two guest facilitators: Joel Krichiver and Lezlie Zucker. We will meet in the space behind the ark, 5:45 p.m. — 6:15 p.m., Friday, December 22nd.

Shabbat Huddles are held approximately once per quarter throughout the year. Looking back over this current year, 2017, here are the themes that we have explored together:

1. February 2017 Huddle: At our February Huddle, we featured the songwriting creations of two of our members, Lezlie Zucker and Tim Intfen. Together with the whole music team, we played and sang many of Tim and Lezlie’s original Shabbat-connected songs, like “Hinei Mah Tov,” “Haporeis Sukat Shalom,” “Sing Unto God,” “Stand & Pray,” “Or Chadash,” “Shalom Rav.”

2. May 2017 Huddle: We focused on Jerusalem, given the Huddles proximity in time to Yom Yerushalayim. From our new High Holy Day machzor Mishkan HaNefesh, we pulled together some meaty Israel-themed prayers and readings. We also sang songs like “Bashanah Haba’ah” and, of course, “Yerushalayim Shel Zahav.” 

3. September 2017 Huddle: This Huddle was scheduled at the threshold of the Hebrew month of Elul, and so it centered around the liturgy and music of this season of preparation for the Days of Awe. Again we drew on the rich readings and prayers found in Mishkan HaNefesh, and we sang songs like “Dodi Li,” “Achat Shaalti,” “Hashiveinu,” and “Pitchu Li.” 

4. And now, for the December 2017 Huddle, here are some of the themes that Joel and Lezlie will explore: Winter will have just begun the day before, which makes this point of the year the darkest time, the time with the smallest amount of sunlight. Lezlie and Joel will weave together music and meditations about light and darkness, drawing also from the Torah portion for that Shabbat.
CONTEMPLATION NIGHT
In the writings of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, we read, “The words of our prayers must not fall off our lips like dead leaves in the autumn. They must rise like birds—out of the heart—into the vast expanse of eternity.” 

At the CBT Contemplation Nights, the world of inner prayer receives our whole focus. The pieces of liturgy, music, readings, and silence all work together to take us on a journey of the soul. Would you like to join us? Our next Contemplation Night will be held on Saturday, January 6th, 5:30 p.m. — 6:30 p.m.
