Upcoming Events at Congregation B’nai Israel of Rumson

By Lori Draz

Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI) wishes everyone joy as they celebrate the High Holy Day season with family and friends. 

On Sunday, Oct. 16 at 6:30 pm, join the congregation for a Simchat Torah Celebration and Dancing Service in the Sanctuary. 

During the Simchat Torah service, the Torah scrolls are taken out of the ark in synagogue, and members of the congregation spend the evening dancing, singing and rejoicing. The scrolls are carried around the sanctuary in seven circles called hakafot. Though only seven circles are required, the dancing and celebrating usually goes on much longer. You can also contact to register for a complimentary special dinner at 5:30 pm before services.

On Monday, Oct. 17 at 9:30 am, join the Atzeret Simchat Torah Service including Yizkor in Sanctuary. 

Plans are underway for the annual Holiday Boutique, coming Wednesday, Nov. 30.  This is always a popular event and a great way to kick off holiday shopping season. More details will follow. 

For more information, visit, email or call the CBI main office at 732-842-1800. Congregation B’nai Israel is located at 171 Ridge Rd. in Rumson.
