Our Mission


Congregation B'nai Jacob is an Orthodox synagogue that is deeply committed to the religious, spiritual, social, and educational needs of its community. The synagogue believes in promoting the importance of Torah values within a modern, 21st Century context. To this end, CBJ stresses the importance of ahavas yisroel – love of one's fellow Jew – in part by providing extensive outreach programs within and beyond the greater Brownstone Brooklyn community. Most importantly, CBJ seeks to provide a meaningful and dynamic environment for all Jewish men, women, and children regardless of affiliation. Join Today!
