CBI to Hold Shabbat at the Shore

By Lori Draz

Coming Friday, July 22 is one of Congregation B’nai Israel’s (CBI) most popular events of the summer: the annual Shabbat at the Shore, being held at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park in Long Branch. 

This musical service and picnic dinner for all ages begins at 4:15 pm with a new community Mitzvah project Beach Clean-Up, so bring work gloves and a refillable water bottle to join in the good work.

“Bring your own dinner” and games begin at 5:30 pm, followed by ocean-side service with Rabbi Doug Sagal and musical guest Cantor Rebecca Garfein at 6:30 pm. The event ends on a sweet note with dessert provided by CBI. In the event of rain, the services will be held at CBI. To register, visit
