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 »
Members of the Beth Jacob community have been spending their summer in myriad ways and places, and we’d like to see them! Send photos of you in far-flung (or near-flung) locales and/or doing exciting activities to Pics@Beth-Jacob.org, and click below to see others!
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!
