Kindle the Light of CBI
“Kindle the Lights, All Eight Nights!”
Spread the act of giving Tzedakah this Chanukah and “Kindle the Light of CBI”
Just as we kindle the lights on the branches of the Chanukah menorah, we need your help supporting the various branches of our congregation. This year, each night of Chanukah will be dedicated to raising awareness and support for a different CBI fund. The goal will be to “kindle the light” for each symbolic candle, by reaching each night’s $1,000 fundraising goal. Please consider giving to each fund to help the light grow even stronger.
Below are the Chosen Funds for each night of this year’s Chanukah initiative. Donations can also be made to the Chesed Fund aka “The Shamash Candle.”
