CEI has a supply of FDA 3-ply disposable masks. The proceeds of this purchase benefits the Excela Pandemic Response Fund through the Excela Health Foundation.  We are making them available to our members at no cost to you, but any donations to off-set costs would be greatly appreciated.  If you need a mask/masks for your daily use, please contact the office and make arrangements to pick them up with social distancing.  Thank you for staying safe!


CEI LINK Program – a video conference experience.  CEI is now video conferencing our Shabbat Services on Friday evenings at 7:30 pm.  We would love for you to experience services with us online from your own home.  Please go to our website www.ceigreensburg.org for instructions on how to log into the meeting.  The meeting code should be the same each week.  If you have any questions, please call and talk with Rabbi Lenny and he will walk you through the process.  Songs for service will be available on the website.  The Mishkan T’filah (prayer book) used in the service may be downloaded through our webpage or one can be borrowed through the office.  Please contact the office to sign one out and arrange pick up.  The “chat” room is usually open by 7:15 pm for a socialization time before service.

Et Cetra

CEI is closed until further notice.  All meetings and events have been cancelled. Shabbat Services are Online Only.  In order to protect our staff, please DO NOT enter the building with your FOB.  If there is something you need, arrangements can be made for safe distancing pick up.


Please note:  When returning forms that require payment, please make sure you WRITE A SEPARATE CHECK for each payment.  The treasurers are not able to transfer funds between them.  Since there are different treasurers, this will ensure you are credited for payment, will make the bookkeeping easier and the processing faster.  The Treasurers no longer accept checks for funds outside their control.  Thank you.
