A friendly, innovative Conservative, egalitarian Jewish community

Congregation B'nai Israel is blessed with Bergen County's most creative clergy, Rabbi Debra Orenstein and Cantor Lenny Mandel, who offer its congregants the perfect blend of ritual and learning in a manner that's stimulating and oftentimes entertaining, funny and poignant.  We are a wonderful balance of families with children, empty-nesters, singles, and families whose grandchildren have become third generation members. Founded in 1958, about 200 families come together as a community in a warm environment.
