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.

Featured Events & Activities

Share your thoughts on the  Upcoming Interim Year at BJC

As you think about the upcoming interim year, what makes you feel excited, curious, uncertain?

Share your perspectives with the Board, Search and Transition committees as they prepare for the coming year.  Join a congregational conversation!

With this interim year, the goal is for our congregation to take time to pause, between where we have been and where we are going. We will take the opportunity to understand even more deeply who we are and how we want to move confidently forward in our future.

Please sign up here to participate in a Congregational Conversation.

Questions? Email  BJCTransitionTeam@gmail.com, or contact Tamar Resnick, Rachel Hertel, or Aaron Silver.
