Our Community

What makes BMH-BJ different?

Vibrant engagement with Judaism and the community…

BMH-BJ is the largest modern Orthodox synagogue in Denver and the second oldest congregation in the area. We are just a few years younger than the city of Denver itself, with BMH founded in 1897 and BJ founded in 1922. The two congregations merged in 1996 to form BMH-BJ.

BMH-BJ is always bustling with activity and programming. We feature one of the top preschools in the city; an interactive and engaging Hebrew School, The Mesorah Learning Center; fun and educational Shabbat morning programming with our Shabbat groups; a warm and welcoming twice-daily minyan and two participatory and meaningful Shabbat minyanim; enriching and relevant adult education opportunities and so much more. In addition, we are home to one of the best Judaica stores in the city and an active Women’s League, Young Professional Network, youth group, seniors group and our Bar and Bat Mitzvah preparation and program is known for its excellence throughout Denver.

To become part of our synagogue family 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 or join us for Shabbat services!
