Welcome to Our New Website

2020 is more than just a year and the beginning of a new decade. It is also the designation of correct vision. We’re proud and excited to share our all-new website and graphic identity. We hope these new tools make clear and accessible BJ’s vision of an inclusive and expansive Judaism, and of a welcoming, diverse, and dynamic community.
