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 116 years and is alive with vibrancy, passion and inclusivity. We invite you to come and experience one of our myriad offerings!
