Installation of our new rabbis:
Rabbi Bess Wohlner and
Rabbi Jeremy Simons
Congregation Bet Haverim invites you to celebrate the installation of Rabbi Bess Wohlner and Rabbi Jeremy Simons as our new spiritual leaders.
The installation of a new rabbi is a historically sacred, ceremonial event to mark the transition of spiritual leadership. To allow the installation to be more heartfelt and meaningful, it is often scheduled months after the rabbi starts to give the community and the rabbi a period of time of interaction and introduction. Please join our haverim as we deepen our bond with our new rabbis.
December 9-10, 2022
Join our CBH Haverim for a weekend of festivities.
