 Make Your Vote Count: Understanding and Ending Gerrymandering in PA
Thursday, November 30th, 2017 | 7:30pm-9:00pm

Congregation B’nai Jacob is hosting a public education program on reforming Pennsylvania’s redistricting process.  Chuck Yeiser, a small business owner in Phoenixville will explain Pennsylvania’s current redistricting process, demonstrate how it undermines democracy, and then offer a solution to the problem.

Fair Districts PA is a non-partisan coalition of citizens and organizations seeking to reform PA re-districting rules by taking the process out of the hands of party leaders and putting that process into the hands of an impartial, transparent, and accountable citizens’ commission.

Please RSVP to the Synagogue Office (610) 933-5550 or email the office

Food Distribution Program


CBJ has partnered with the Jewish Relief Agency (JRA) to create a network for delivering groceries to housebound people in Phoenixville one Sunday a month.

Thank you to everyone who helped with Tikkun Olam/Social Action projects throughout the year! We did so many mitzvot! CBJ can be proud that we:
· delivered hundreds of grocery boxes through our Food Distribution Project
· packed over 300 Breakfast Bags for Aid For Friends,
· donated 58 adult coats plus a box full of hats, gloves and scarves to Eagleville Hospital,
· donated 52 kids coats plus a big box of hats, gloves and scarves, 3 pairs of boots, a big bag of toys and $490 in gift cards to St. Mary's shelter in Phoenixville,
· donated toiletries and nonperishable food to PACS in Phoenixville,
· donated party supplies to a local shelter and
· cleaned up CBJ on Mitzvah Day!

We have expanded the program to include more households and we need more back-up drivers, so please let us know if you are interested in helping with this wonderful project! Contact Amy Borla or Tess Casper.
