Congregation B'nai Israel
"The Home for Today's Jewish Families."
Congregation B'nai Israel is a Conservative, Egalitarian Synagogue located in the heart of the Pascack Valley, in Emerson, New Jersey. With a membership of approximately 200 families, we are pleased to offer something for everyone. In 2009, we launched a new Flexible Hebrew School program for our youngest members beginning with our K-2 program and continuing through 7th grade. Our active Sisterhood, Men's Club and Social Action committees offer many programs and events throughout the year for all age groups. We offer Adult Education classes as well as Adult B'nai Mitzvah classes with our Cantor. Since 2008 we have hosted a very successful series of "Casual Shabbats" which focus on music and innovative programming to encourage all our members to try something new during Shabbat prayers. Come see what's happening at B'nai Israel and learn why we are "The Home for Today's Jewish Families."

The High Holidays represent a special time to connect with the Jewish community. Through the EZ Key program synagogues in the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey catchment area are saying "Welcome" to new members of the community (who have lived in Bergen County / Passaic County / Hudson County for two years or less) by offering free High Holiday Tickets. Tickets are available for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, including Kol Nidre and Yizkor. Want more information? Please contact Nancy Perlman, NancyP@jfnnj.org or 201-820-3904.
