Historic Congregation, Vibrant Community

Since 1858, Congregation B’nai Israel has been the hub of Jewish life in the Capital City.

Because of the generosity of its members, this congregation has survived, adapted, and grown despite turbulent times including the Civil War, the Depression, the Holocaust, the election of a former leader of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan to the state legislature, and beyond.

We invite you to join this proud tradition and mitzvah (good deed) of contributing to this historic congregation. Your investment will support this vibrant Jewish community for generations to come.
