Biennial Gala Celebrating 90 Years!

Join the celebration at our largest fundraiser and community event.

As with every great party, we will provide an opportunity to mingle with friends, old and new, enjoy wonderful Middle Eastern inspired food. And there will be dancing!

These are the basic ingredients for a wonderful evening but the success of the Simcha comes from seeing our congregation coming together to celebrate CBJ’s 90th Birthday. We will also use the Gala to unveil the CBJ 90th anniversary video, which will feature some of our congregants sharing their stories from past decades. We will be using events during 5780 to tell some of those stories—to celebrate not just CBJ’s past, but also CBJ’s arc as a shul moving beyond its first ninety years.

The 2020 Gala will be celebrating ninety years of CBJ, in terms of many of the stories that define us as a congregation of the past, present and future. Coming soon will be an online Tribute Book to send birthday wishes to CBJ or place an advertisement for your business that will reach the CBJ community.

Our evening Gala is an opportunity to celebrate as a community, connect with familiar faces and make new friends. Have fun bidding on silent auction items over cocktails followed by a seated dinner with a hilarious Heads-or-Tails game and crucial Fund-A-Need. Tickets  are available on a first-come basis. As alcohol will be served, this is a 21-and-over event.
