B'NAI JESHURUN CONGREGATION
We are pleased to welcome you to our website and look forward to meeting you at our synagogue. B'nai Jeshurun is a Conservative synagogue and has been the spiritual home to Jews in Cleveland for more than 150 years. We provide spiritual, educational, cultural, and social activities, programs, and services to nearly 1,000 families. Come and join our family and you will see for yourself how warm and welcoming we are.
Friday, August 18 at 7:00pm
Bring your families to this wonderful evening, with a live band playing some of today's most upbeat Jewish music. You will find yourself tapping your toes, clapping your hands and dancing to these contemporary melodies. Multiple musical genres are woven through the service, highlighting text from each of the Psalms, which creates an energizing and engaging service. A special prayer book has been created to offer Hebrew, transliteration and English to make this service user friendly. Listen to and download tracks from our website. Services will be held in the Linden Family Courtyard, weather permitting.

THE EVENT OF THE CENTURY (AND A HALF)
More than 300 congregants, friends and community members walked the red carpet on Sunday, October 30th at our Sesquicentennial Gala Premiere, as we raised a remarkable $270,000 for our Ensuring the Future endowment campaign, through commemorative ads, sponsorships, auction bids and donations. It's not every day that a synagogue celebrates 150 years, especially a history as rich as ours! As we wrap up our year-long anniversary celebration, we hope you agree that this has been an amazing year of "honoring the past, celebrating the present and ensuring the future."
