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 »

Post-Kiddush Session at Beth Jacob
April 19th

The Ways of Peace:

Bringing Peace into our Difficult Conversations

How do we respond to the Psalmist’s command that we “Seek peace and pursue it”?  Rabbi Amy Eilberg will teach an experiential session demonstrating ways to practice the Jewish value of peace in the midst of difficult conversations in our lives.


Workshop for Beth Jacob

Sunday, April 20th, 10 AM-Noon 

Practicing the Ways of Peace

Drawing on the ancient Jewish system of Mussar, Rabbi Amy Eilberg will teach on some of the middot or soul traits that are essential to pursuing peace in our personal and communal lives and in our engagement with the world.  This session will include study and guidance on regular personal practice to strengthen the spiritual muscles needed by seekers of peace.

Shabbat Morning Prayer Survey

Our community has prayed together for almost thirty years, but we haven’t taken much time to talk about it together.

The Beth Jacob tefillah team is seeking input from our community about Shabbat morning prayer. This survey is meant to help the team better understand congregants’ experiences of prayer and to identify themes and issues that can focus our work. Responses will be kept anonymous.

If you would like to contact a member of the tefillah team personally, you are welcome to do so. If you would prefer to answer these questions one on one or in a small group, please contact Sheldon Berkowitz, or call the shul office, 651-452-2226.
