Preparing CBS for Passover

  • Help us prepare CBS from 1-4 p.m. in a bi-annual event of tidying our physical spaces for the community!

  • We'll be accepting donations of usable clothes and household items for Community Thrift from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. (proceeds benefit CBS). Please ensure all donations are acceptable items.

  • Following our community-wide tidying of CBS, we will nosh on some bread products (chametz) while listening to a dialogue between Rabbi Ain and Jeremiah Lockwood.

  • Rabbi Ain and Jeremiah Lockwood discuss their most meaningful Passover traditions - through rabbinic and musical lenses. Bring your questions and engage us all in a holiday filled with purpose, inquiry and spirit, beginning at 4 p.m.

  • Finally, Revive your soul with a performance from The Fraternal Order of the Society of Blues. Jeremiah Lockwood (guitar and voice), Ernesto “Lover Cat” Gomez (harmonica and voice) and Ricky “Dirty Red” Gordon (washboard and voice) comprise this band: a tribute to the Life and Music of Carolina Slim (aka Elijah Staley). Check out the video below for a preview! Performance will begin at 5 p.m.
