BJBE is where community matters. It is what defines us, binds us, and allows us the freedom and comfort to discover who we are and who we hope to be. We all come to BJBE from different places, seeking different things. We all find a home here. At BJBE, we all belong.

We are thrilled to be launching our new, self-directed membership model, our Shared Sacred Partnership. With this groundbreaking new membership program, you decide how you want to support BJBE with an annual commitment that is right for you and right for BJBE.

BJBE is an inclusive and welcoming community. We encourage participation from all who seek a connection to Jewish life and want to be part of our sacred community regardless of religious background, race, ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, ability, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity. We encourage all to participate in our community, regardless of knowledge of Hebrew or Judaism.

BJBE offers dynamic, innovative programming. We provide an active community to those who wish to make a difference, a caring community to those less fortunate, and a nurturing community to those seeking connection.
