Minyanim at CBI

Scroll down for more info on Avodat Lev, Wednesday Minyan, Meditation, Rosh Chodesh Minyan, and Ohel Minyan.
All are welcome to join us for these in-person and virtual prayer offerings.


Second and Fourth Tuesdays from 7:00-8:00 pm in the CBI Water Building Garage.
Avodat Lev (Heart Work) is a contemplative chant-based practice based on one of the three Jewish services to honor the passing of the day. It follow the core structure of the ma'ariv/evening service. This avodah/service will however look different liturgically, and will include Hebrew and English chanting, movement if desired, guided meditation and meditative silence. The practice is meant to guide us in greeting the afternoon, acknowledge our own holiness and our connection to the holiness of the Creation and allow us to express gratitude. No prior prayer knowledge or practice is required and all are welcome.

We are looking for leaders! It’s an easy, flexible and creative format. Contact Jen Wenz or Simcha Halpert-Hanson for more information.

Thursdays at 8:00 am on Zoom; first of the month in person in the CBI Sanctuary
In the midst of our very busy lives, it is a wonderful gift to set aside this time each week for quiet contemplation. People begin to arrive at 8:00 am and take a seat in a circle. Some people do yoga or tai chi or simply relax and settle in to the quiet atmosphere.

At 8:15 am, a group member gives a ten minute D’var Torah to begin the session. Then, for half an hour of meditation, all is peaceful and silent. One needn’t be an experienced meditator to take advantage of this time for separation from the world of noisy demands for our attention. Everyone is welcome. We invite you to try it.


Join us for Rosh Chodesh minyan at CBI to celebrate the new Hebrew month. Rosh Chodesh minyan begins at 8 am on weekdays, 9 am on Sundays and is part of Shabbat morning services when Rosh Chodesh falls on Shabbat. Please be in touch with Lew Rosenthal, Rosh Chodesh minyan coordinator, if you can help make a minyan this month.


Daven (pray) with the Ohel Minyan, a traditional egalitarian minyan. Ohel Minyan meets Mondays through Fridays at 8:15 am and Sundays at 9:00 am.
