Shabbat morning services are the largest regular gatherings of the CBINT community outside of the holidays. A word about the space where we gather: CBINT’s Sanctuary draws one into the gentle arc of its seats as one’s eyes receive natural light from above and from the beautiful Eternal Lamp. The sweep of the Sanctuary culminates in inspirational visions of the Burning Bush that echo one another on the Ark doors and the Torah covers behind them, and finally resolves in the stacked geometric design of the Ark itself.
We take comfort when we see one another in our habitual places in the Sanctuary. There we open our hearts to Torah for another turn in its annual cycle, lift our voices in prayer and song, celebrate and grieve milestones in our lives, reflect on matters of the day and our lives through Rabbi Alter’s sermons, welcome visitors and new members, and share a meal (and perhaps a schnapps) as we catch up. For these reasons and more, Shabbat morning is where CBINT “happens” for many members of the CBINT community, and we invite you to be present there.
Minyan carries the hearts and hopes of generations of Jews in the timeless, quiet routine of communal prayer. Some attend daily, others weekly, and still others as their own spiritual needs call them, in particular for Kaddish in the year of mourning and yahrzeits. The established prayers, Torah study, and Torah reading are fixed parts of our service. We welcome you to this bedrock community of CBINT. CBINT is the only progressive synagogue in Milwaukee supporting twice-daily minyan throughout the week.
We hope you will join us for holidays throughout the year. Please see our calendar for service times. Festivals and holidays begin on the evening before the first day and candle lighting should be done in relation to sunset, depending on the holiday or festival.
