We may be 120, but we feel invigorated; not only because of all of the anniversary activities we have planned throughout the year, but because we have renewed our commitment to being a diverse, egalitarian and welcoming community.
I think of Judaism as a religion of strivers; folks who come from different backgrounds, have different needs, ask different questions, but walk the same path and thereby, create a community. At B’nai Israel, we offer a sincere sense of community in which to explore and experience Jewish practices and beliefs, at your pace and within your comfort zone.
Synagogues can be intimidating places, but the modest size and appearance of ours truly reflects the warm, intimate experiences you’ll share with our B’nai Israel family. Please come join us: for free High Holiday services, for a Shabbat service and luncheon, children’s services, a social event or a free class.
Children are warmly welcomed here. And their journeys through Judaism, from a brit milah(bris)/baby naming through our free pre-school, to our religious school and bar/bat mitzvah classes, is a joy shared with the congregation. Ask us about how your family members can be involved. Please contact us to meet with Rabbi Altenburger, who will be more than happy to answer your questions.
Wherever you’re at, is where we will welcome you.
