Welcome to B’nai Zion Congregation!

Please visit our Worship and Holidays page for the latest information on High Holy Days and on how to join us remotely.

Our Mission Statement
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.

Our Why Statement
To celebrate and enrich Jewish life.

Our Vision Statement
To inspire a vibrant, uplifting, and inclusive community connected to the dynamic traditions of Conservative Judaism.

Pikuach Nefesh, saving a life, is paramount in Judaism. Given our current health crisis, all in-person events and services are temporarily suspended. We continue to re-evaluate the situation, keeping everyone’s safety in mind while following city, county and state guidelines. However, Kabbalat Shabbat is being held via Zoom on Fridays at 6:00 pm and Minyan on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm.

Please go to this page to see the many virtual opportunities for our community to gather.
