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.
Featured Events & Activities
Note New Date – Saturday, March 2
Due to the custom of refraining from celebration during shloshim, the Kiddush for D.Marcos will be rescheduled for March 2, since the original kiddush date fell during what ended up being shloshim for Victor Vital, D.Marcos’ father.
Join us to celebrate D. Marcos Vital in honor of his years as our Congregational Educator at a Kiddush in his honor! Join us to celebrate our great love and appreciation of D. Marcos!
After Kiddush, 2 Saturdays a Month
Get yourself ready for the next time you go to Israel and learn some practical Hebrew from St. Paul Shalicha Tal Dror! The class is free, and there is no need to RSVP; just come after kiddush.
2 Saturdays/month, 1-2 pm: February 9, 23; March 9, 23; April 6, 27

Calling all submissions for the Purim Film Festival!
Are you an amateur filmmaker? A professional? Are you still reading this? We are seeking the submission of Shpiel-y films, 6-60 seconds in length to be shown on March 20th during Mendota Megilla Madness. Your topic should be silly, and involve the Purim story, or not. You should have a cast of thousands, or animation, or a talking dog. Be creative, submit your entry by March 7, and wait on the edge of your seat for the debut of your masterpiece.
Questions? Contact Frances@Beth-Jacob.org, because you know if you don’t contact her she’ll contact you and harass you into making a film anyway.
