Modern Orthodox Observance In A Liberating Environment
The rich tapestry of Orthodox Judaism, woven together with the challenges of modern society is abundantly evident in all we do at Congregation B'nai Jacob -- in the observance of Mitzvot, in the joy of Shabbat, and in the dedicated and individualized education of our children, in the integration of Judaism into all aspects of our lives.
Though firmly committed to tradition, the Congregation does not ignore the issues of modern life. Men and women alike are encouraged to learn with a Chavruta (partner), in groups, or on their own. In this way, members are freed to grow at their own pace, and the observance of Torah and Mitzvot becomes a positive and fulfilling experience. We all share in the excitement of one another's accomplishments.
B'nai Jacob is open to all Jews, whatever their level, who want to develop a deeper appreciation of their Torah legacy. Many members who were once non-observant have taken on many spiritual commitments of which they would never have dreamt. Our synagogue is a great place to grow.
While those raised with Orthodox backgrounds are fairly represented in the Congregation, Ba'alei T'shuva whose zealous and newly found enchantment with Judaism are richly evident. All congregants are very special and are crucial to B'nai Jacob's diversity.
