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 »

After over a year of meeting monthly to sing together, O.Z.Y. is going on hiatus for the summer.  April 25 will mark your last chance this year to enjoy this particular combination of rounds, chants, and liturgical songs with harmony led by volunteer song leaders from the congregation, and influenced by Joey Weisenberg‘s ‘Singing Congregations’.

If there is interest, we’ll start up again after the new year.  Thoughts or suggestions? Contact Pam Winthrop Lauer at


Childcare will be available.
