Congregation B'nai Israel: One Community

CBI is a Conservative synagogue serving the Somerset Hills with warm regard for Jewish tradition. Under the leadership of our beloved Rabbi John Schechter, we are blending morals, our ethics and ideas, and working together to build one strong community for our future.

Why Join CBI

One Community—it’s what Congregation B’nai Israel is all about.  We are an egalitarian, conservative synagogue in the Somerset Hills, bringing together Jews from all walks of life.  As we gather to pray, work or socialize, you will find the atmosphere always warm and inviting with a vibrancy and exuberance for learning and sharing.

Our congregational community was founded in 1990 on the beliefs that a synagogue is not only a place of worship, it is also a place to form lifelong friendships, practice tikkun olam (repair of the world), and share lifecycle events.  These beliefs and practices still hold true today and will carry us forward into the future.  We hope you will join us on our journey.

Whatever your interests or needs, we are confident that you will find a warm welcome to join our community, and you will find a home in Congregation B’nai Israel.

We welcome people from all backgrounds and abilities and look forward to having you join us at Congregation B’nai Israel.
