Welcome (ברוכים הבאים) to Beth Jacob Congregation! We are an 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 »
Want to Lead Services? Let us know!
Service leading by congregants is a strength of our shul. A key way that we are an engaged community. We would like to expand the pool of doveners and pre-assign parts. This will give folks the chance to prepare, brush up, learn or teach.
We have a short (1.6 minute) survey to help us with these goals, but we need your help:
We would like to hear from everyone (even if you’re not interested in leading; you can indicate this in question #1, in which case the form will be very short). Note: If you spoke to a member of Team Tefillah this past summer to give us your information, we have it, so no need to do it again. Not sure? Please fill in the form.
If you’re looking for info on preparing for Pesach, or ways to spice up your seder, look no further than Beth-Jacob.org! Everything is here, from the service schedule, to how to search for chametz (and how to sell yours), to help finding a seder (or finding more guests for one you’re having), making your seder better, lots of resources, and more!
Whether you are an absolute beginner to Hebrew, or a fluent speaker looking for a chance to keep your skills up, we’ve got a free program for you to engage in more Hebrew speaking!
