We are a volunteer organization for our members, run by our members. Getting involved at Congregation B’nai Israel is very easy. We encourage it. You can join any one of our numerous “troops:” the auxiliaries, special-interest groups, and committees that welcome your energy and involvement.

Check back often on this website to discover ways new to you to make a difference, based on your interests.

If you are seeking synagogue group activities that don’t exist yet, we encourage your leadership initiative. It requires little more than imagination, ideas, and commitment to start a new group for others to join. Let us know the help you need to muster. Let’s get rolling!
