"The world stands on three pillars: Torah, Service and Deeds of Loving kindness"  
Pirke Avot 1:2 (Ethics of the Fathers)

Experience B'nai Israel through one of our many programs that enhance Jewish life in Gainesville, Florida!

Within our three pillars of excellence, B'nai Israel strives to provide strong religious and spiritual experiences, educational opportunities for all ages and enhance community relationship among and beyond the Jewish community. Our congregants play a vital role in making that happen--serving as the fundamental core of what we do and how we do it. We have a congregation made up of people who are dedicated, generous and full of heart to make our synagogue the best that it can be.

Join us at B'nai Israel and you can be a part of this unique community.
