The CBS Annual Fund is the main fundraising vehicle for the synagogue, allowing CBS to fund new programs, perform needed capital improvements, retire debt and support general operations. Over the past three years, through the generosity of our congregants, we have been able to increase our fundraising capacity. In 2018, we raised over $150,000, and saw increased participation from the entire congregation. Please help us continue to make CBS a warm, engaging and vibrant community by making your donation to the Annual Fund today!
