Jersey City’s contemporary egalitarian synagogue

Welcome to B’nai Jacob

Congregation B'nai Jacob is a contemporary egalitarian congregation in the Conservative tradition, dedicated to developing, supporting, and sustaining contemporary Judaism, Jewish living, and our diverse Jewish community for 50 years. 

We seek to encourage and stimulate higher levels of Jewish knowledge, ethical living, and observance among our members, and to transmit these traditions to the next generations.

Because B’nai Jacob recognizes the wide divergence of knowledge and practice among Jews in Hudson County today, we have designed and enhanced our services to provide a fulfilling Jewish experience to all.

Within our warm, supportive community, we strive to foster meaningful spiritual experiences and a sense of Jewish connection and continuity. We provide a welcoming environment which values feelings of kinship, a sense of belonging, and spiritual enrichment in daily living and life cycle events.

Under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Marsha Dubrow, our inclusive, egalitarian religious services include a high level of congregational participation, such as reading the weekly Torah portion and Haftarah, leading responsive readings, and conducting services on alternate Shabbats. Members enjoy Shabbat and festival dinners many times during the year and a new program of Jewish cultural activities.  Come visit us.  You will receive a warm welcome at B'nai Jacob. 

Please browse through this website for more information about the congregation. Then give us a call at (201) 435-5725 or email and we’ll be in touch.mailto:info@bnaijacobjc.orgshapeimage_1_link_0

To the left and right of the Bimah photograph above are the words which are an inseparable part of our ark doors and before the congregation at all times. These words are, transliterated, “Hesed” and “Emet”: “Righteousness” and “Truth.” They are the fundamental ideas that inform the Jewish faith and our practice of it.
