CBI Membership Form

Whether you have been connected to CBI for years or are new, we are delighted to have you join us as a member. 

As a member of CBI, you will be an integral part of our progressive Jewish community campus. CBI’s campus includes a synagogue associated with the Conservative movement, Abundance Farm, Gan Keshet Preschool, ALMA religious school, teen programming, adult education, havurah micro-communities, Tikkun Olam social justice work, and many more ways to live Jewishly and to be in community with others. Your dues helps make all of this possible.  

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ

Please log into your account by adding your name to the top of the form above where it says "Enter a Name". If you have been receiving CBI emails, then you already have an account. If you do not have an account, you can send an email to amy@cbinorthampton.org to set one up. Logging in will allow you to pay by bank transfer  which will avoid credit card fees. You can also pay by credit card, but we ask you to pay the convenience fees, as well.

If you would like to set up monthly payments, please make sure the number of payments equals the number of months remaining in the fiscal year. Our fiscal year ends on June 30. 


If you prefer to pay by check, please make sure you are logged in, then choose "bill to account" in the payment section after submitting this form. Please send the check to CBI 253 Prospect St. Northampton, MA 01060, attention Amy Stein.

The goal of this initiative is to provide a platform for people to fill in gaps they experience in current Jewish programming and offerings by providing the structure and support for gathering and forming mini-communities that foster deep, caring, supportive relationships.
