About Us:

The BJBE Purpose BJBE is a congregation dedicated to foster the vibrancy of Reform Judaism through Torah (lifelong Jewish education), Avodah (worship of God, through prayer and observance), and G'milut Chasadim (the pursuit of justice, peace, and deeds of loving kindness) and is dedicated to the perpetuation of the traditional ideals and spirit of Israel, as interpreted in the precepts and practice of Reform Judaism.

B'nai Jehoshua Beth Elohim serves an ever-growing Jewish community by reaching out in fulfillment of the traditional threefold purpose of a synagogue; that is as a Bet HaMidrash, A Bet HaTefillah, and a Bet HaKnesset, a House of Study, Prayer, and Meeting. As a member of the Union for Reform Judiasm, the umbrella organization of the Reform movement in North America, BJBE is using its over 35 years of service to the Jewish community as a solid base from which to launch the congregation into the 21st Century, setting goals that will perpetuate the synagogue's reputation for leadership in education, worship, and programming.

We are a diverse congregation with more than 1100 families, including many interfaith families. BJBE welcomes new members because we believe that each family/person brings talents, energy and prospective that enrich us.

If you have questions about the experience of membership as an interfaith family at BJBE, please reach out to one of the congregation's interfaith family members, Kathy Leonard at
