The Congregation B’nai Israel Community
Congregation B’nai Israel welcomes all into our vibrant, inclusive congregational family. We pride ourselves in providing a temple community where our members feel socially connected to one another, as well as our clergy and leadership. Through a variety of thought-provoking programs for adults of all ages, as well as age-appropriate events for children and teens, we invite individuals and families to deepen their personal Jewish connections with our congregation.
The Congregation B’nai Israel Brotherhood provides a fresh vision of Judaism for a new generation of men. Mindful of the diverse background of today’s Jewish male, the Brotherhood seeks to reinvent itself as a relaxed and enjoyable setting for personal growth and communal connection. If you haven’t connected with a Brotherhood, our club was designed for you!
The mission of our Brotherhood is to foster fellowship among the men of B’nai Israel and to inspire acts of Tikkun Olam, sustaining and promoting Jewish culture and community. The Brotherhood engages, educates, and energizes our members, promoting strong leadership and Jewish ideals for our community and ourselves.
The Congregation B’nai Israel Sisterhood is a dynamic group of women celebrating all of our roles in Jewish life. Across age groups and life stages, we represent the modern Jewish woman on the south side of Atlanta. We participate in a variety of activities designed to foster fellowship within the Sisterhood, and support our Jewish and synagogue communities. To get involved with the Congregation B’nai Israel Sisterhood, email Angie Ellis.
Both groups offer fun, fellowship, games, and a youth-centered exploration and development of faith. We gather to support one another, to have a good time, and to think about some of the big questions of life in a safe environment. We have regular meetings with activities and special events throughout the year. The youth group participates in several mitzvah projects every year, such as working with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and The Zaban Shelter.
