Congregation B’nai Israel is a conservative synagogue located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are a welcoming multi-generational community of 200 families. We have membership levels for families, individuals, active military, and students. Membership is open to all Jewish families, as long as one adult is of the Jewish faith. Yearly membership begins on July 1 and ends June 30.

We ask our members to pay annual dues to receive all the benefits of belonging to Congregation B’nai Israel. We will arrange a financial plan that works for you if you are unable to pay full dues. Dues may be paid in full or on a monthly basis. We accept payment by credit card, personal check, or secure payment, click here
