Congregation B’nai B’rith (CBB) is a diverse, inclusive community of individuals and families building together a warm and vibrant house of living Judaism.

CBB is a Reform Jewish synagogue located in the gorgeous foothills of Santa Barbara. Incorporated in 1927, CBB’s roots began with just 15 families. Today we are proud that 730 families call Congregation B’nai B’rith their Jewish home. Our temple family is made up of young families, families with teens, empty nesters, singles of all ages, active retirees and the very elderly.

We welcome everyone who wants to be a part of CBB’s community and we know that each person who walks through the door is unique. If you are not yet sure you want to be a member we invite you to get to know us. We are happy to add you to our mailing list, so you can learn more about what we offer and participate in those events that interest you. Getting involved is the best way to meet people, make friends and discover what activities strengthen your Jewish identity and involve you in community. We want your experience to meet your expectations and we are committed to working in partnership with you to make it happen.

The big question that always comes up is “How Much Does it Cost?”

We have numerous membership commitment levels and we ask you to review these options and make a decision that best fits your circumstances. If none of the commitment levels fits with your financial situation, we definitely want to talk with you about what does work. We do not want financial issues to determine whether or not you join the Temple. If you want to be a member, we make a commitment to you to make it work. We ask only that you to give to the best of your ability.
