CABI Corners


Co-Create Community and Connection

CABI Corners are small affinity groups co-created by YOU and others in the CABI community with similar interests. Your little corner of our CABI community may share a fun evening, a deep conversation, a creative project, or an experience. Group interests are (almost!) unlimited, and may include Shabbat dinners, hiking, games, book groups, parenting topics, or…

Bereavement Group


Bereavement Group

This is a limited group, a maximum of eight members who have experienced the loss of a loved one in the past few years.  The members commit to six sessions, alternate Mondays from 5:30 - 7 in the CABI library (as available), for a total of 12 weeks.  We are co-led by CABI member and social worker Victoria Thompson who has experience as a hospital chaplain and in hospice, as well as Jeni Emerizy, former Bereavement Coordinator for St Luke’s Hospice.  We walk through a grieving process in a safe environment for each member at their own stage of bereavement.  If you are interested, contact Sherrill Livingston at



Rosh Chodesh is an ancient Jewish women’s holiday celebrating the new moon and the new month, and it’s a holiday that in our time, Jewish women are reclaiming to observe, appreciate and celebrate in ways that have meaning to us here and now. We’ll gather, visit, nosh, learn, share and enjoy, as we mark our spot in this still-relevant and continuous journey. We’d love to have you join us.
Please bring a dish or beverage to share, and please RSVP to Betsy Russell at 

Pickleball Group

is a recreational club that brings together members of the synagogue community who share an interest in playing pickleball.

Genetic Cancer Risks

This corner might be of interest to you if you are 18 or older, have Ashkenazi heritage, if you've had breast, ovarian, prostate, skin, or a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.

We will begin by posting resources. In person events may be planned for the near future as needed and desired.

In the general population, the incidence of having a BRCA 1 or 2 mutation is about 1 in 400. In those from Ashkenazi Jewish descent, it's actually 1 in 40NCCN now recommends genetic testing for the BRCA 1/2 mutations in ALL individuals who have at least one parent from Ashkenazi Jewish descent because of the high prevalence rate. And while this seems alarming, the good news is that with this guideline, health insurance companies must cover it. And of course, this knowledge allows families to make decisions for themselves and their children to do all they can to stay healthy.

Sharsheret offers expertise on Jewish women and men going through breast and ovarian cancer and those who are previvors (people who have BRCA but not cancer).

Interested in learning more, contact Christine Maldonado.
