Yes, folks, it’s Summer!

As you remember, last summer we weren’t allowed in our sanctuary, so we improvised outdoor services that included picnics and frisbees and (occasionally) ice cream. This summer, while we can be in our sanctuary, we would like to continue the tradition of at least a few outdoor services during the summer.

On Fridays we will be alternating between 6:00 outdoor picnic/service at the Acton Arboretum, and 7:30 in the sanctuary. For our 7:30 sanctuary service, we are hoping to arrange some sort of sweet dessert-ish Kiddush items outdoors before the service, at 7:15 or so.   Check Star-Lite for location, when planned at Arboretum, in case of inclement weather.

Find directions HERE to the Acton Arboretum.

In addition, we will be having biweekly Saturday services at CBE.  These may be innovative outdoor services, or they may be traditional, depending on what the leader wants to do. 

Most of these services will be lay led, by our new cadre of trained lay leaders.  However, Rabbi David and Cantor Sarra will lead the August 12th and 26th Friday night services.  

Here are more details about each of the three types of service/ event:

Friday night early service and picnic at the Acton Arboretum:  Bring your own picnic noshes beginning at 6:00 PM. Services  begin at 6:30 until 7:30. Drinks provided.  Don't forget to bring a folding chair.  Bring your glove, mitt, softball, bat, children and dogs.

We will use the siddur Chaveirim Kol Yisraeil.  If you have a copy of this Siddur, please bring it with you.  

Friday night at CBE:  1 hour service starting at 7:30.  We will use the siddur Chaveirim Kol Yisraeil.

Saturday services and Torah Study:  Bi-weekly services from 9:30 AM to 12:00 PM.  We will use the siddur, Lev Shalem.

All services will also be accessible via CBE's Main Zoom account. Please see the latest Star-lite for login details.
