Welcome to Congregation B'nai Israel, where we have been creating community in Gainesville for over 85 years! Our diverse and progressive congregation aims to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere where authentic Judaism may be practiced and where innovation, creativity and originality are encouraged. We are proud to be a part of the Conservative/ Masorti Movement.

We strive to enrich our community through education, opportunities for prayer and spiritual growth and acts of loving-kindness. We offer something for everyone and we invite you to come home to B'nai Israel!

Sign Up to Provide Cookies for Champions!

Congregation Bnai Israel is grateful to be part of a community of generous and hard-working individuals who give so much to our community. As Jews we value the gift of community and deeply respect those individuals who volunteer to keep our community safe, healthy and secure during their holidays.

"Cookies for Champions" is our gift to the greater Gainesville community of first responders who are on call 24/7 -- even during their holiday season. It is our pleasure to take a moment on this day to show respect with a small token of our appreciation.

Your participation in "Cookies for Champions" will help us fulfill our role as ambassadors of Judaism in Gainesville. Please take a moment to volunteer in some capacity as we reach out to the wider community in this small way.
