Bruchim Haba’im! Welcome to Congregation B’nai Israel!Reform Fairfield Jewish

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.
