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 »

BJC Israel Trip

Israel: 
A Journey of our Shared Love & Responsibility
Led by Rabbi Morris Allen
December 25, 2018 – January 6, 2019
Travel to Israel during this 70th year of its Independence to both grapple with the challenges it faces, and the successes it shares. It will be a journey to remember, an opportunity for deepening our love of and our responsibility to Israel. It will provide an opportunity for seeing the challenges of pluralism, the need for peace and reconciliation with our Palestinian neighbors, and the need to better understand the needs of the minority cultures inside the State.

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!
