Welcome to Congregation B'nai Israel

Congregation B’nai Israel is the center for Conservative Judaism in the greater Toledo, Ohio area. We are an egalitarian, inclusive congregation, and embrace both Jews and those in the community at large who wish to explore and enhance their connection with God and with Jewish spirituality, learning and culture. We are committed to Jewish tradition, while also recognizing the wonderful diversity of modern life. We enthusiastically welcome interfaith couples and families as well as those considering associating with the Jewish community.

Our dedication to the concept of lifelong learning includes both adult education and a strong youth program, providing religious services, education, and programs for people of all ages.

All services and events have been suspended until further notice.
