Message from Rabbi Kaiman

Welcome to Congregation B'nai Israel! I am so very proud of our community, and I look forward to welcoming you to our special place. Congregation B'nai Israel is a diverse and dedicated community that has provided a space for Jewish life for over 85 years in Gainesville. Here, you will find Jews of all backgrounds and beliefs who are united in the desire to celebrate our connection to tradition with modern sensibilities. We consider ourselves open and creative, and yet we want to foster that connection with ancient tradition. We have many different worship services, classes, community activities, and social action projects that we hope will inspire you. Additionally, we strive to be a congregation that is responsive to your particular interests and needs and is open to your ideas and participation. We are large enough to provide a great many activities and yet small enough to accommodate everyone regardless of their level of experience or previous affiliation. We truly welcome all!

Jewish life in Gainesville can be challenging, but many have found their Jewish voice in our community. I am available to you at any time and look forward to personally getting to know you and welcoming you to our community and congregation! Shalom!
