Welcome to Congregation B'Nai Jeshurun

Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, a member of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, was the first Jewish congregation on Staten Island.  We are an inclusive and egalitarian congregation that welcomes people from the entire community.  We offer Hebrew School classes, monthly family services, and special programs throughout the year.   Our Hebrew School is flourishing with classes on Thursdays and Sundays.   Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons are available as well.  Our teens are tremendously active and influential in our community, they have developed their own Hebrew High School program that focuses heavily on community service.  Come join us for services in our beautiful sanctuary or come to one our many community wide programs.  We welcome you and your family to our CBJ family.

We encourage you to join us this Tisha B’Av to commemorate the destruction of Jerusalem and ultimately the great Bait Hamikdash (temple) that led to the exile of the Jewish people for centuries to come. Marking these moments as a community connects us to the arc of Jewish history and helps us understand the complexities of Jewish identity and how to respond to our modern-day challenges from an authentic Jewish perspective.

The services will start with 4 Rabbis who will each speak for a few minutes; Rabbi Sam Kastel, Rabbi Gerald Sussman, Rabbi Stern, and Rabbi Perl.

The actual service will begin promptly at 9:00 PM and end at 10 PM.
As Tisha B'Av is such an important holiday, we hope you can attend.
