Welcome to
our Sacred Community

B'nai Jeshurun is a nearly 200-year-old non-affiliated synagogue located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. We welcome all, no matter the path traveled.

"Joining and participating in the BJ community has transformed the trajectory of my life."

Suzanne Schecter, First Vice President


Many of our programs and services have moved to VirtuShul, our virtual shul—a living, connected, loving, virtual community.

We have been moved by how Zoom has allowed so many to gather together for morning and evening minyan, for meetings, and programs.

Prayer at Home

We have temporarily closed the BJ campus, and all in-person prayer services and other programs have been canceled until further notice.

We will continue to broadcast Shabbat services via our Livestream. Other services will be offered by Zoom meetings.

A Time of Pain and Fury

We will continue to commit to undoing racism day in and day out in our community, and in partnership with other communities.

We will channel our rage, our brokenness, and our power to dismantle racism and live out the vision of the prophet Amos.
