Congregation Beth Elohim, founded in 1861, is one of the fastest growing and most vibrant synagogues in New York City. CBE, also known as Garfield Temple, was recently named "one of America's 25 most vibrant congregations" by Newsweek, which hailed CBE for "quickly adapting to Brooklyn's exciting, young population." Open to people from a variety of backgrounds who honor our traditions and values, CBE serves as a hub for members and for the surrounding community as well. It is a place of worship, dedicated to honoring Jewish traditions, and also a place of learning, a place to socialize, to celebrate and to actively engage with the world, a synagogue center energizing and enriching our Jewish community through study, ritual and acts of loving-kindness.
