Since 1922, Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI) located in Monmouth County, has served as a religious, cultural and educational synagogue for Jewish residents of the greater Red Bank area. Multi-generational and egalitarian, CBI is a place for prayer, spirituality, shared observance, Judaic learning and social mingling...a place to honor life-cycle events and celebrate Jewish holidays. A member of the conservative movement, CBI is dedicated to guiding our children and ourselves to appreciate the values, customs and history of our Jewish heritage, to live a life of mitzvot, to support Israel and to transmit the love of Judaism and pride in our Jewish identity to succeeding generations - L'Dor Va'Dor.

June 1, 2022 

Dear Congregation B'nai Israel Family, 

As promised, the Covid Task Force and leadership have been monitoring the status of Covid-19 infection and transmission in our community. 

At present, the CDC has placed Monmouth County, New Jersey in the Covid Community Transmission Level of ‘high.’  Recommended actions based on this level include wearing a mask indoors in public.

Our Mask Optional Policy remains in place.  To comply with the CDC recommendations, and to keep each other safe, we encourage you to wear a mask in the building (preferably N95 or KN95).  

For Onegs and Kiddushim, we will try to socially distance or, weather permitting, eat outdoors. 
We thank you and wish you and your family good health.

Barbara Newman Rosen,  CBI President
Dr. Joel Edman, Covid Task Force Chair

Celebrating 100 years

Incorporated in 1922, Congregation B’nai Israel will joyously celebrate its centennial in 2022.  Special events are planned to mark this landmark milestone.  Rooted in the legacy of its founders, membership still includes multi-generational families, along with many others who have migrated to our area. 


  Watch video above and then read about our history in:  A History of Congregation B'nai Israel, The First Hundred Years. 



Join us in celebrating our Anniversary

on Thursday, October 13 7pm -10pm.



E-Torah from Congregation B’nai Israel

June 10 2022

11 Sivan 5782


The portion of Naso is the longest portion in the Torah.  Chapter 5 verse 9 teaches that when a person makes a gift to the sacred service in the Tabernacle, it is “his”, that is the priest’s.  However the Sages cleverly say that when a person makes a gift of tzedakah, it is “his”-the giver’s-that only money that we give away to tzedakah is truly ours-because by giving it away we have mastered it, rather than it mastering us.

Mayer Rothschild used to say “only the money I donated to tzedakah was mine-the rest-could always be lost”.  When we give tzedakah we show that we are truly the owners of our wealth-and that our wealth does not “own” us.

Shabbat Shalom

Rabbi Doug Sagal
