At Reeves park (CBJ if rain)
On Wednesday evening, August 7th, the Kehillah of Chester County in partnership with the Chester County religious schools is excited to be presenting a Tzofim Concert and Family Fun Night. In addition to providing this event as a community-wide get together for existing synagogue members and their families, we are promoting this as an outreach program in hopes of attracting unaffiliated families to enjoy the music and dancing of the talented troupe of teens from Israel, and to learn about the diverse Chester County congregations and what you have to offer.

Have you heard about Community Portrait? It’s a population study, commissioned by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia once every 10 years, that will help us to most effectively evaluate and support the needs of our local Jewish communities. Your answers will help us to direct our resources to where they're most needed so our entire Jewish community can continue to grow and thrive! Keep an eye out for the survey in the mail to see if you've been selected to take part in the survey. Learn more at the link below!
Are you on Facebook?
Did you know that the ladies at CBJ are starting a Majong Group on Monday nights? Everyone needs to join both the official CBJ page and the CBJ private group (search for Congregation B'nai Jacob Group to join) on Facebook. Here you can find out many things that are going on and make suggestions to what you would like to see happen.
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.
We are now delivering to 30 households in the area each month and we will be expanding to 36 households. In order to make this program as successful as possible, we need your help packing and delivering boxes! It's a small commitment with a big impact!
Sunday, 7/21/19 at 9:30AM
