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 »

  • Please bring something to share — a couple bottles of wine, some challot, your grandma’s kugel, a big green salad, or that Smitten Kitchen dessert you’ve been longing to try.
  • The kitchen will be closed, so wrap it in a towel to keep it warm or bring something that’s yummy at room temperature.
  • All food must be vegetarian. If you’re cooking something, please make sure all the ingredients are unprocessed or have a hechsher. (Want help figuring out what that means? Give us a call!)
  • Want to help us reduce waste? Bring your own plate and flatware.
