We are delighted to welcome you to B’nai Israel. At B’nai Israel, we are very proud of our daily minyan, which convenes on each weekday morning at 7:15 AM and at 8:00 PM in the evening. On Sundays, minyan is at 9:00 AM and 8:00 PM It provides a meaningful community for those who are saying kaddish, but it is much more. The minyan is a testament to our concern for the value of tefillah b’tzibbur, communal prayer. In non-Covid times, coffee and cake are served each morning, with a more elaborate breakfast on Sundays and Wednesdays.

If you are new to the congregation, please be sure to introduce yourself to the clergy and other members of the minyan. We are always eager to welcome newcomers and to include your loved ones’ names before the recitation of kaddish and other prayers. We look forward to “davening” with you.


Open your siddur or humash at home or away from home and participate in our Shabbat, festival, and High Holiday services. Follow the reading of the Torah, study the parasha together with the congregation, listen to the comments of the rabbis on the many concerns of Jewish life, offer personal prayers, and sing familiar melodies along with the hazzan and our B’nai Israel community.

We look forward to worshipping with you.
