Bruchim Habaim – Welcome to Beth Jacob Congregation! We are a Conservative synagogue of more than 350 families located near St. Paul, Minnesota. We are guided by the principles of Torah (study), Avodah (meaningful worship and work), and Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness). We exist as a congregation in order to practice and further our understanding of Conservative Judaism through the celebration of Shabbat, holidays and lifecycle events, and daily practice. More »
