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

Kol Nidre Partnership Appeal

Contributions to BJ’s Kol Nidre Partnership enable us to continue groundbreaking work in the fight for social justice; to shelter and feed those who experience housing and food insecurity, to speak out for those who cannot, and to continue the fight for a more just world.


Join us on Fridays at 6:15 PM for Kabbalat Shabbat via our livestream. On Shabbat morning, services will begin at 9:30 AM via our livestream. Services will be led from the Sanctuary, with no members present. Zoom is available exclusively for members.


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.
