CBI Cares Needs Your Help!

Do you like to cook? Are you good at ordering take-out? Can you help others in our community who are undergoing a challenging time? We are looking for generous members of our community to join the CBI Cares Meal Team, a group of individuals who can help prepare a home-cooked meal (or expertly order delivery) for those who are ill, hurt, healing, new parents, or recently bereaved.

If you would like to be a part of the CBI Cares Meal Team, please reach out to Rabbi Mason-Barkin (rabbimasonbarkin@cbiaz.org).

Much thanks to Carol Kadet, our CBI Cares Volunteer Meal Team Coordinator!

CBI Cares is a part of the Hilton Family Welcome Home Project.


Shema Circle: A place to listen, a place to be heard

A supportive group for CBI members experiencing life transitions, losses, and difficult moments to share wisdom, stories, connection, and healing.

As Jews, storytelling is central to our identity. The Shema Circle offers a place to tell our stories, to make sense of our lives through our tragedies, loneliness, joy and change.  The stories we tell ourselves about ourselves narrate and shape our lives – but sometimes to make our way through painful seasons, we need to change the way we understand our stories.

We invite you to join our healing support group and begin to share and revise difficult parts of the story with love, confidentiality and hopefully a little laughter.  


CBI Cares, a part of the Hilton Family Welcome Home Project, is a group of inspired and motivated CBI volunteers who are here to support and to show care to our CBI community.

How can we help you?

We invite you – at any time, not just in ‘uncertain times,’ to reach out to cbicares@cbiaz.org. Through this confidential, clergy monitored email address you can easily let us know:

  • If you or someone you know about is unwell
  • If you are in need or in distress
  • If you could benefit from a phone call
  • If you’d like to share a cup of coffee with a caring congregant
  • If you need a ride to temple
  • If you could use a home cooked meal
