Congregation B’nai Israel is a longstanding cornerstone of Jewish life in the Greater Bridgeport area. While we were founded over 150 years ago, our strength lies in our willingness to look to the future. A recent expansion and renovation of our building included a new chapel, social pavilion, and additional classrooms. What truly makes us special, however, are the people who belong here. We pride ourselves in being a place where a diverse intergenerational community forms long-lasting friendships, enriches their lives through shared learning, celebrates joyous occasions and supports one another in times of need.
As you may have seen, the weather for Sunday does not look promising. We will make the final decision about whether to move the 5:00 p.m. Beach Service from Jennings Beach to the Temple by 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. If it is cancelled, we will send out another email and will also post it here.
Follow this link for our Service schedule, need additional tickets, sign up for babysitting or youth programs.
The Religious School page now has the schedule up for the full 2016-17 year.
“Chesed” means acts of loving-kindness, goodness, and compassion. Among other things, Chesed arranges rides to synagogue for members, allowing them to participate in religious services and other congregational events. Can you help us do this?
