Do you have old photographs of our shul? An article clipped from a newspaper? Memories from a rite of passage that your family celebrated at CBA? A special story to share about CBA's past?
We are in the early stages of creating a CBA archives that would hold all of our legal and historical documents in one place, including our Articles of Incorporation and property documents, as well as your photographs, articles, and written memories. If you are interested in helping out with this project, please let us know by email.
We Get By With A Little Help From Our Friends
In the past year, CBA has benefitted greatly from your time and talents - from the DIY'ers who have taken on the building repairs, to our daveners and musicians. At this year's Congregation Meeting, many new ideas for CBA activities and improvements were suggested. If you would like to help with Ritual, Programming, or Building DIY, please contact our volunteer coordinators:
