Congregation B’nai Jeshurun encourages its members to participate in the growth and development of the Synagogue. In other words we want you to “get involved” by joining one of our committees. By doing this you not only assist in the ongoing operation of the Synagogue but you also have the opportunity to meet people with similar interests.
