The Torah both calls on us to serve God joyfully. It recognizes, too, that God draws near to the brokenhearted. Rabbi Alter and Hazzan Stein believe that a synagogue can truly be home to a community when its people are fully seen and heard – when their highs and lows are lovingly embraced.
CBINT’s clergy offer easy access and confidential discussion for congregants seeking to share, unburden, and understand their own hearts. Both Rabbi Alter and Hazzan Stein are well-networked with outstanding local caregivers and make referrals when more specialized work is appropriate.
There is no charge nor expectation of payment for pastoral care offered by the synagogue.
