CBS Service Times Survey
For the last two months, as part of an experiment, we have changed the timing, length, and content of our Friday night and Shabbat morning Services.
As part of this experimental change, Friday night Services are 6:30 - 7:30pm followed by an Oneg; Shabbat morning Services are 10 - 11am, followed by a Torah Discussion, and Kiddush at 11:30am. Once a month we have offered a full Shabbat morning Service, with Torah Service, at 10am - 12pm followed by Kiddush/Oneg.
Please follow the link below to a survey in order to let us know what you thought of the changes and make suggestions about any other changes to times/content you would like to see.

Thank you for using Raley's "Quality of Life" and SaveMart "SHARES" cards when shopping. These are easy ways to raise additional funds for CBS.
Now there's a similar card available from O'Brien's Market. You just have to fill out an application form and take it to the market. Everytime you shop, just hand the card to the checker and a percentage of your purchases will be paid to CBS. The forms and more information are available at the Office and on our Forms page.
PayPal is Here
Just a reminder: we offer the option of using PayPal™ for some online payments. This is a pilot program, for now limited to our DONATIONS page. If you already have a personal account with PayPal, you may make payments from there. If not, it will take your credit card.
The first time through may be a bit daunting for those "mouse-challenged", but the instructions linked at the top of the page should see you through. Pay special attention to the last screen--if you don't type in a dedication, we will never get that information, and any reflection of this donation in future will not have it (e.g., in the Bulletin). One other note: because PayPal subtracts a fee for this service, your contribution receipt from CBS will only reflect the net amount received (generally, the fee is about 2.2% plus $.30)
Committee Members Sought
Some of the following Committees are in need of volunteers. If you are interested, please call the Committee chair(s):
