Welcome to B’nai Zion Congregation!

Founded in 1888, the mission of B’nai Zion Congregation is to provide a multi-generational, inclusive community dedicated to the education, worship, and celebration of Judaism. Our vision for B’nai Zion is to be an open, accessible home for those who want support, prayer and happiness. B’nai Zion is seen as a place of kindness and support during life’s crossroads. As well, B’nai Zion is an example to the larger community of spiritual and religious organizations who practice “tikkun olam” in our community. We are a family that share s’machot (joyful occasions), tragedies, opportunities, challenges, and both spiritual as well as personal growth.
