· Shalom ! Do you want to learn Hebrew? Or do you want to take your current Hebrew to the next level? I'm Niri Zach. I was born and raised in Israel and have been teaching Hebrew for the past 10 years. In my classes you will learn the Modern Hebrew that is spoken in Israel today. While it takes commitment and practice to learn a new language, I always do my best to make the classes fun and engaging!… See More Image may contain: one or more people www.nirimodernhebrew.com

Congregation Beth Sholom is excited to be working with Oakland Kosher to provide seder meals for our congregants. Place your order by THIS THURSDAY AT NOON to guarantee your order. Orders will be available next Tuesday afternoon for contact-less pick-up or delivery (for those who cannot leave their homes). If you are not interested in purchasing food, please consider donating a meal to another community member. Donations can be made through the order form. If you would like a seder meal but the cost poses a financial hardship, please contact Rabbi Russell at [email protected].
Where is everyone getting their Pesach stuff? I didn't see anything in Safeway Mill Valley last week and Mollie Stone's doesn't have the Whitefish and Pike that we like. What are you finding?
Great to be part of this important virtual f2f community. Please do continue updating...look forward to early Kabbalah at 4 PM.
Is there a problem with donations online? I can't make a donation right now. Thanks
What a blessing to end Shabbat with music, prayer and many from the CBS community! https://zoom.us/rec/share/1OxRCoj-7UZOAYHj7FjNW_InDIHYX6a81XAer_JZmLa6B0afuwyFfl5YXaLTj94

CBS creates opportunities for Jews, their loved ones, and friends to share authentic and meaningful religious and spiritual experiences. Our modern synagogue campus is teeming with life and activity, and our dynamic rabbi draws on his deep well of Jewish knowledge to communicate the great truths of Judaism as they relate to 21st century lives and concerns.

We offer traditional services as well as new and affecting alternatives. Importantly, CBS celebrates that no single approach to Judaism fits all. Personal choice is respected and the diversity of our community is nurtured. We also pride ourselves on being a safe and welcoming space for community members of all sexual orientations and gender expressions. For more than 300 households, Congregation Beth Sholom is home.

Mission: CBS creates opportunities for contemporary Jews, along with their loved ones and friends, to share authentic and meaningful religious and spiritual experiences. We also aim to build and sustain a community empowered to make a positive difference in the world.
