ברוכים הבאים
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.

SUMMER KABBALAT SHABBAT/SHABBATLUCK DINNER

Friday, June 25

This summer, we are having Kabbalat Shabbat services outdoors every week!

Every other week, services will be followed by an outdoor potluck Shabbat dinner.

Our first “Shabbatluck” will be on Friday, June 25 at Rogers Lake Park in Mendota Heights. We will begin with a program for families with young children at 5:30 pm, followed by Kabbalat Shabbat at 6 pm, dairy potluck dinner, and Ma’ariv.

BETH JACOB CAMP SHIRTS

Camp Shabbat: Saturday, June 12

Camp is back, and so is the Beth Jacob Camp Shirt! On Shabbat, June 12, we will be celebrating sending kids off to camp, and we will have free shirts for all who are going.

While services will be in person, we know that some camp attendees will be in the pre-camp quarantine process and will be unable to attend. We will unveil the shirt at services, but they can be picked up at Beth Jacob anytime during business hours!

GAME DAY RETURNS

Shabbat, June 19, after Kiddush

Come for Shul, stay for games. Bring games, see what we have, learn mahj, the sky is the limit! (Literally, we will be playing outdoors. The ceiling is the limit if the weather is not nice.)

Kids and grownups welcome!
