Congregation B'nai Torah offers weekly erev Shabbat services Friday evenings throughout the year. Led by Rabbi Eiduson and Cantor Breines (pictured), these services always serve as a wonderful way to welcome Shabbat and fill our hearts with joy.
Our Shabbat Yeladim (Children's) services take place on the first Friday of the month beginning at 6:30 pm and is popular among families with young children through Grade 5. The service lasts just 45 minutes and is always enjoyed by all.
Our Shabbat Kehillah (Community) services take place on the remaining Fridays of the month beginning at 7:30 pm. These services feature a wonderfully engaging topical sermon prepared by Rabbi Eiduson which always sparks interesting conversation among the members.
We also offer eight special Musical Shabbat Services throughout the year. These services are choreographed and led by Cantor Breines and consist of beautiful, uplifting music from beginning to end. The next two musical services will be on Friday evenings May 20th and June 17th at 7:30 pm. Please join us as the congregation lifts its collective voice in song!
All services are followed by a tasty oneg Shabbat provided by our members.
Our innovative one-day-a-week K-7 Religious School helps children build a solid foundation of values and beliefs that will guide them throughout their lives.
Classes are taught by an experienced staff of engaging, interesting, intelligent teachers who offer the best of themselves each and every day. Class sizes are typically no more than 8-10 students to ensure that each child receives the individual attention and support that he or she needs.
Our post-B'nai Mitzvah programs provide our teens with the opportunity to learn about and discuss interesting topics related to Judaism and life with our rabbinical staff in fun and engaging ways. Classes meet two evenings a month and always include dinner.
As students progress through the program, they also have the opportunity to travel with Rabbi Eiduson to tour the Holocaust Museum and other sights in Washington DC in 8th grade and on a ten day trip to Israel in 10th grade as part of a collaborative initiative between CBT and Sudbury's Congregation Beth El.
We would be happy to answer any of your questions about our wonderful Religious School. For more information, please e-mail Rabbi Eiduson at email@example.com.
This year's Purim Carnival was one of CBT's biggest and best ever! Our sanctuary was filled with over 120 children and adults who enjoyed a wonderful night of festivity and fun.
While CBT's children enjoyed playing games, jumping in the Moon Bounce, eating Hamentashen, and participating in our costume parade, our CBT Brotherhood members enjoyed being involved in all aspects of the planning and organization of this wonderful event.
Our Purimspiel was also especially good this year. Written, produced, and performed exclusively by CBT members, "Harry Potter and the Kiddush Cup of Manischewitz" will not soon be forgotten.
We look forward to more fabulous Purim festivities again next year!
Congregation B'nai Torah, in partnership with Congregation B'nai Shalom of Westborough and World Passage Tours, is proud to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity. World Passage is one of the most trusted and experienced operators of mission trips to Cuba in the Jewish community. Rabbi Eiduson is delighted to be partnering with them along with Rabbi Rachel Gurevitz and members of the B'nai Shalom community.
Our 8 day trip to Cuba will enable us to meet with and learn about Jewish communities in Havana and Cienfuegos, delivering some resources and funds to help meet their needs. We will have experiences offered to few travelers to this tropical island nation. And you will be helping the Jewish Community of Cuba.
Our trip will also provide you with a full experience of Cuba! It has been said that you experience Cuba with all of your senses. Cuban culture's vibrancy and vitality is alive. Cuba is old and it feels as though time has stopped. But it is full of life from the aroma of cooking food, to the rhythm in the way people move, to the sound of music in the air.
Due to the increasing popularity of these trips, we will be looking for commitments by the end of August in the form of a non-refundable deposit.
For more information about this special opportunity, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Over 50 CBT members and guests enjoyed a special screening of the film "Orchestra of Exiles" on February 27th, 2016.
"Orchestra of Exiles" is the suspenseful chronicle of how one man helped save Europe's premier Jewish musicians from obliteration by the Nazis during World War II. In three years, Bronislaw Huberman transformed from a world renowned violinist to a humanitarian racing against time.
The film was preceded by an introduction by CBT member Viola Morse, whose mother and uncle were two of the musicians recruited by Huberman to join this world famous orchestra.
Many thanks to the CBT Interfaith Group and Adult Learning Committee for co-sponsoring this very special event.
Be sure to check out CBT's new hangout spot! Our new sofa, chairs, and coffee tables make the library the perfect place to relax, refresh and catch up with your temple friends.

Many thanks to CBT's Membership and Beautification Committees for collaborating on this wonderful project for all of us to enjoy.
