About Us

B’nai Jacob is a warm and welcoming Jewish community in Jersey City. A place where friends and family connect with each other, engage in meaningful prayer, and discover new ways to celebrate our traditions and culture. We celebrate Judaism in a vibrant, fun, creative, warm and life-affirming manner and welcome all with warmth and hospitality. We support the State of Israel and acknowledge its vital importance to our congregation and the Jewish people. We embrace the diversity of our community and strive to be inclusive and cohesive, caring and welcoming.

Congregation B’nai Jacob thanks the Violet Zall Hordes Foundation for their generous grant to support our religious programs and services.

Thank you to the Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey’s Hudson County Regional Council for their support!
