My husband is in the military and we got stationed here in Sacramento. We wanted to find a synagogue that was family friendly that would continue to support our Jewish heritage while being so far away... from our families. Congregation B'nai Isreal gave our little family all of this!! We have only been going for 9 months and feel we have gained friendships within the community. Thank You! See More

Excellent. As a member of the synagogue you feel a member of the community. The rabbi and the cantor are so interesting to listen to. My family and I are so happy to be here!

Everyone here cares for each other so much! The religious school is robust and multidimensional with elective classes and mitzvah days. Lots of social opportunities!

Wonder warm feeling. Rabbi explained the service so that it was inclusive. Great B'nai Mitzvah program-best I have ever attended.
