Who We Are

WCBE_No Tagline_Color.png

Women of CBE is more than a sisterhood. As the old saying goes, "Do you want to speak to the man in charge, or the woman who knows what's going on?" As an affiliate of Congregation B'nai Emet, we are the powerhouse driving many events, programs, and fundraisers benefiting CBE, our community, and Jewish women everywhere–and we laugh a whole lot along the way! In an age that can feel isolating, we offer genuine connection and friendship, along with the opportunity to find meaning and fulfillment in our identity as Jewish women. Join this energetic group of talented women, and contribute your own unique abilities. There is always room for you at our table.


Women of CBE is a proud member of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), Pacific District.
