CBE Style Guide

Quick Links: Name ● Logos ● Consistent Spelling ● Copyrights


The synagogue should be referred to as “Congregation Beth Emeth” at the beginning of any communication, and in subsequent references may be abbreviated as "Beth Emeth" or "CBE." 


Both internal and external documents, presentations, and especially publicity items and forms should generally have a CBE logo on them. Auxiliary organizations (Sisterhood, Men's Club, BEECCPA and Hazak) are welcome to feature their own logos, and preferably also include a CBE logo if there is space. The logos shown below are provided for Congregation Beth Emeth (CBE), Herndon, VA, members and staff to use in publicity and documents for CBE business.

Acceptable CBE Logos are shown below; to download, right-click (PC) or click and hold (Mac/Android) and save/download. Or you may be able to copy/paste directly to your document. Please do not distort these images, change their color, or use them on non-CBE-related projects without permission. If these logos do not meet the needs of your project, please contact for an alternative.
