Welcome to Beth Jacob Congregation

We are a welcoming, 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.

KIDDUSH KITS

We put together “Kiddush Kits” to help it feel a little more like Shabbat. The kits can be used on their own, or in conjunction with our online kiddush! If you can’t pick one up but would like one, let us know on the sign-up form.

If you would like to sponsor a future week’s kiddush kits, the cost is $400; go to Beth-Jacob.org/donate and choose “I would like to sponsor a kiddush” under “Choose a Fund”.

If you would like a kit, you must sign up at Beth-Jacob.org/KiddushKit by WEDNESDAY of that week; Kits can be picked up on Friday at Beth Jacob between 2-4 pm.
