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 »

This year, Selichot at Beth Jacob will feature a performance by Dylan Fresco. Dylan is a dynamic, talented performer, and this event is not to be missed!
Welcoming The Stranger is a 30 minute solo performance weaving together true stories of refugees, family and faith. Originally commissioned by Rimon: The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council, Dylan has been sharing this memoir piece with diverse audiences since 2011. Following the performance, Dylan will lead a facilitated reflection and conversation.
Following a reception, Rabbi Amy Eilberg will daven Selichot.
The High Holy Days are coming soon, so here are some resources to help you get ready!
On Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, our daily and weekly liturgy is expanded to include the themes of the days; This year, our shlichei tzibur gathered to choose some musical motifs that they will use throughout these Days of Awe, beginning with Selichot and continuing through Yom Kippur.
Click here to listen or download a selection of recordings (some by our shlichei tzibur, some by others) that you can listen to, to evoke the mood of the holidays or to learn some of the music ahead of time so you can join in singing heartily in the moment.
Open to the Community!
Tues. evenings, 7:00-8:30, beginning Oct. 21
Are you curious about Judaism? Considering conversion? Want to know more about your background? An interfaith couple?
Beth Jacob is offering our first ever comprehensive Introduction to Judaism course, taught by Rabbi Cathy Nemiroff. The course will cover fundamental concepts of Judaism, liturgy, Jewish history, the life cycle, and cycle of Holy Days. Our learning community will celebrate Shabbat with a class dinner and attendance at some Shabbat services together. The course will emphasize “Jewish doing.” Couples are encouraged to attend together.
