Come be a part of our San Francisco Bay Area Jewish community

At BIJ we pride ourselves on our welcome and warmth. All are welcome at our services and events. We know how important it is to find a spiritual home, a place where Jewish community is valued and real.  Our home is open to Jews and their non-Jewish family and friends. The congregation is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism.

A BIJ, you can find new friends, nurture your faith, and serve the Jewish people in the Bay Area and in the world around us. 

Join us for our Shabbat dinners and musical services, for concerts , social events and cheering with our crowd at a baseball game!

Learning is part of our DNA.  We offer classes and programs for adults and children, including Hebrew instruction, preparation for Bar & Bat Mitzvah, Torah study, and holiday preparation.  Our Rabbi Danny Gottlieb brings a wealth of deep Torah knowledge and insights based on his rabbinical training at Leo Baeck College in London, England, and as a member of the Institute of Jewish Spirituality’s 4th Rabbinic cohort.  His experience and training makes our Torah study, Parashah commentary, and Shabbat derashot insightful as well as approachable.

 

Beth Israel Judea’s office is open Tuesday – Thursday, 10am – 5pm, and Friday from 10am – 3pm.

We are closed for most Jewish holidays.

Contact us at (415) 586-8833 or office@bij.org

The Ethical Conundrum of a Jewish and Democratic State

The Ethical Conundrum of a Jewish and Democratic State jstern June 8, 2021
