Our goal is to be a home for spiritual growth where all Jews feel welcome, within a traditional, multi-generational congregational framework. Congregation B'nai Jacob is the only Park Slope area synagogue where SERVICES TAKE PLACE 365 DAYS A YEAR. Our doors and hearts are open to all Jews, irrespective of age, socio-economic status, lifestyle, background or affiliation. All individuals are invited to grow in their understanding of Torah and beauty that Jewish tradition offers. Prayer services are conducted according to time-honored Jewish tradition. Shabbat services include an inspirational D'var Torah (sermon) by the Rabbi. Prayer books and Chummashim with English translations are provided for those who don't know Hebrew or who feel more comfortable praying in English. Festive Shabbat and Holiday community meals and Kiddush after morning services provide an opportunity for socializing with other members of our friendly community.
If you need to say Kaddish for a departed loved one, if you need a friendly place to celebrate the holidays, if you need a kid-friendly synagogue where your children will feel comfortable as they become familiar with their heritage, if you just want to look at our beautiful sanctuary, to hear a melody or say a prayer, please come in. You are welcome. Come as you are.
If you have questions about Judaism, our Rabbi will be more than happy to answer them. In addition, he can counsel you about various educational opportunities for children of all ages that are available in the community.
If you are a Jew looking for a shul where you will truly be welcome, truly be appreciated, truly be valued - then Congregation Bnai Jacob may very well be the shul you are looking for.
We welcome comments, programming suggestions, and most of all questions about Yiddishkeit (Judaism) from everyone.
