Congregation B’nai Jacob Welcomes Interfaith Households

Congregation B’nai Jacob, an egalitarian and inclusive Synagogue, recognizes the increasing diversity of the North American Jewish community. At Congregation B’nai Jacob, we respect the right of every person to make autonomous religious decisions. Our community welcomes non-Jewish spouses or partners  as an engaged part of the B’nai Jacob family; Judaism has a wealth of resources to help you confront life’s challenges and celebrate life’s joys. We partner with all who join us in creating homes rich in Jewish tradition and in raising children as learned and committed Jews.  Whether you are seeking personal connection or you just want to help your family’s development, we are here for you.

Here are some of the opportunities we offer:

  • Education - Adult learning classes to help you gain a comfortable understanding of our worship services and Jewish traditions.
  • Involvement - Participate in volunteer projects, educational activities and committees.
  • Full access to and assistance from our Rabbi - If needed or requested, our Rabbi will meet and talk with you and also place her interfaith connections at your service if you wish to speak with clergy of another faith.
  • Participation - Join in the religious school activities and life-cycle events of your family members.
