Events & Programs

B’nai Israel is justifiably proud of our wide range of programming, which profiles the vitality of our synagogue and its multi-faceted and positive vision of Jewish life. Our building bustles every day with activities, reflective of our values and mission, for youth, seniors, and everybody in between.  The wide variety of offerings reflects our commitment to meet people where they are and help them to grow individually while learning about their heritage or serving the larger community.  We hope you will join us!
