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.

Waze to Democracy

We must actively participate in the choice of our leaders and engage in the ongoing work of sustaining our democracy which, now more than ever, cannot be taken for granted. Our democracy is strongest when every voice is heard and every vote is counted!

VirtuShul

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.

Lighting the Path Ahead

With your help, B'nai Jeshurun is better equipped to pursue its vision of a transformative spiritual community and more just and peaceful world.
