Congregation B’nai Israel strives to ensure that Jewish learning is constantly occurring because we know, as Jews, that learning is essential to the maintenance of Jewish values, identity and continuity. Our goal is to create a community where people can share in experiences of Jewish learning and become energized by it.
We provide opportunities for individuals and families to develop a spiritual, educational and social connection to Jewish life and to the Congregation, as well as to integrate Judaism into people’s daily lives.
