 Congregation B'nai Israel, 171 Ridge Road, Rumson, NJ 07760  See map

Accompanied by songs and prayers,

from the preschoolers to the adult choir,

Dov Goldberg will be formally installed as the new Cantor and Director of

Education at Congregation B’nai Israel (CBI) on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at 10 am.

The installation ceremony will take place in the main sanctuary. Everyone in

the community is invited to attend. A luncheon will immediately follow.

Francine Semaya, President of CBI

stated, “this is a day of celebration. Cantor Goldberg joined us just a few

months ago but his warmth and enthusiasm have already filled our halls, our

classrooms and our sanctuary. We are blessed that he has such a beautiful voice

and a love of Judaism but also that he is approachable and loves working with

people of all ages.  We hope that everyone,

including current and former members, as well as newcomers and friends, will

join us.

Cantor Goldberg came to CBI from

Portland, Maine where he served as Director of Congregational Learning at

Temple Beth El.  With a background

and education in Judaic studies, theology and psychology, Cantor Goldberg has

held various teaching, administrative and cantorial positions at synagogues,

day schools and a Jewish college preparatory boarding school in Greensboro,

North Carolina. “He is a wonderful teacher with an incredible depth of

knowledge, ” said Semaya.

“When we hired Cantor Goldberg,

we got even more than we hoped for,” said Sandy Rosenbloom, Co-Chair of the

Installation Committee.  “His

parents, Sol and Marilyn, and his wife, Danielle, moved to Fair Haven and have

become an integral part of our CBI family.  Sol, a Rabbi for more than 40 years in Rutland Vermont,

reads Torah at many of our Shabbat services and his wife, Danielle, is running

our sisterhood gift shop.”


B’nai Israel is located at 171 Ridge Road in Rumson, New Jersey. Serving the

for some 300 families in Monmouth County as well as providing religious

education for preschoolers to adults and hosting social and civic functions for

the community.  To reserve a place
