CBT Happenings for the next 24 hours

 Chodesh Tov!

Wishing you all a wonderful new month of Kislev.

Kislev ends with Chanukah. It is typically the month with the least sunlight and the theme of the whole month an Chanukah is about our ability to turn darkness and adversity to light. 

This is something we have all been working on throughout the pandemic and Thank G-d we have seen a lot of that in our community. 

Rosh Chodesh begins tonight (11/16) after sundown and continues until Sundown, tomorrow (11/17).  We recite Yaaleh Ve'Yavo in Maariv -we don't go back if we forgot after we say G-d's name in the blessing of Re'tzeh

Tomorrow 11/17, we recite all the extra prayers for Rosh Chodesh as outlined in your siddur.

We are working on a new Sunday class  - a reading group in the works of  Rabbi Jonathan Sacks OBM.
