More than a shul, Congregation B’nai Torah is a spiritual home for members of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of observance. We look forward to welcoming you and building community together. Congregation B’nai Torah (CBT) was born in 2008, the product of an unprecedented triple-merger of local Orthodox congregations. Each of our parent institutions, Beth Israel, Kesser Israel, and Kodimoh, sustained a century of vibrant Orthodox Jewish life in the Springfield area prior to embarking upon a five-year merger process to form CBT. We continue to honor the legacy of these great congregations, even as we forge ahead as a new entity.
