Welcome (ברוכים הבאים) to Beth Jacob Congregation! We are a diverse, egalitarian Conservative synagogue of more than 350 families located in Mendota Heights, Minnesota, easily accessible from all parts of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area. 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 »

New Siddurim

Dedicate One Today!
Beth Jacob has just switched to new Siddur Lev Shalem prayerbooks thanks to the Edward Paster family, and we have begun using them for services. Now is your opportunity to dedicate one of our brand new prayerbooks in someone’s memory or in their honor. To dedicate a siddur, click here.
Cost is $36.

Medical Device Share

Many congregants have medical equipment in their homes that they needed temporarily, but no longer need. Many items are only gathering cobwebs (crutches, shower chairs, wheel chairs or “travel” chairs, etc.). Most of us would love for them to be used and are willing to lend them out.
Beth Jacob has set up a way to share your equipment or borrow what you need; go to Beth-Jacob.org/MedEquip. Add your name and item to the list, or, if you need an item, contact the person who has it. Refuah Shleimah!
