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

Creation, Chaos, and Children

Creation, Chaos, and Children jstern September 17, 2021

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. God said: “Let there be light.” And there was light.

Sukkot Breads in Fall Colors

Sukkot Breads in Fall Colors jstern September 13, 2021

Decorate your Sukkot table with Ethiopian, North African, and Sephardi breads full of fall colors and tantalizing spice mixes and broaden our palates to the customs of worldwide Jewish communities. Laden with seasonal honey, pumpkin, or orange, they don’t need braiding, and they make perfect gifts.

7 Jewish Endeavors to Make 5782 a Sweet New Year

7 Jewish Endeavors to Make 5782 a Sweet New Year jstern September 13, 2021

It’s a long-standing custom for Jews to wish one another a “sweet new year” on Rosh Hashanah; to hope that this coming year will be one filled with joy, fulfillment, and an abundance of blessings. However, Judaism isn’t a path focused simply on wishing for good things; if our goal is to make each year “sweeter” than the last, we must work to make it happen.
