ABOUT US

BMH-BJ is a unique, independent orthodox congregation serving a diverse membership. We are united by our love for each other, a respect for all Jews, support for Israel and commitment to traditional Jewish values and authentic Jewish living. Our community includes a vibrant morning and evening service every day of the year with a mechitzah, a family seating experience on Shabbat and holy day mornings, a dynamic, award winning and growing preschool program, a highly innovative Religious school where parents learn along with their children, and a variety of daily and weekly Torah and adult education classes and programs for lifelong learners. Our calendar is filled with a wide variety religious, cultural and social events and activities created to meet the needs of people of every age.

We welcome all who want to connect, engage and journey with us at BMH-BJ. We aim to create a safe, inclusive community for all who enter our doors. Whether you are Jewish by birth or by choice, new to halachic observance or born into it, married, single, divorced or widowed, gay or straight, old or young, fluent in Hebrew or the slowest reader on the planet – all are invited to join with us in prayer, Torah study, tikkun olam, support for Israel and the sacred work of being a Jew.

We are an historic synagogue with a rich past and a bright future. BMH was founded in 1897 while BJ was founded in 1922 and together merged in 1996 creating the BMH-BJ we know and love today. Our community shares in an immense love of learning and growth, God and mitzvot, compassion and justice. To become part of our BMH-BJ community is to place yourself in a synagogue whose history stretches back more than 120 years and is alive with vibrancy, passion and inclusivity. We invite you to come and experience one of our myriad offerings!
