Creative Judaism Rooted in Tradition

We serve Jews from traditional and liberal religious backgrounds, as well as secular Jews, interfaith couples and their families. We vary in degree of observance and cultural practice, bringing new vitality to our tradition while maintaining continuity with our heritage, our people, and our history. BJC chooses to remain independent and unaffiliated with established movements, taking a trans-denominational approach to Jewish worship and thought. Music and congregant participation infuse all of our services. Our programs enable everyone to engage fully with our traditions no matter their level of Jewish knowledge or practice. 

Join with us on your Jewish journey, and become part of our community.

Manna Food Drive

Manna's mission is to end hunger in Montgomery County. During High Holy Days, BJC members and the Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church Nursery School fill grocery bags with healthy food for Manna Food.  In 2019, we collected about 2 tons of food! 

BJC is collecting right now during the High Holy Days! Pick up your brown bag at the BJC office. The blue Manna bins are in the parking lot and will be there through Sept. 16th. For a list of most needed food items, click here.

For more information, contact Sheila Wolpert .

COVID-19 STATUS

AUGUST 2021: BJC is returning to in-person services. Services will continue to be available online.

In accordance with best health and safety recommendations, attendees will be asked to wear masks until further notice during events held inside the building. This is for everyone, regardless of vaccination.
