Welcome to B'nai Sholom

We Are Very Glad To Welcome You To B’nai Sholom

A place Reform Jews and their families — of
whatever backgrounds — can truly call “home.”

We are all dealing with a dynamic and challenging situation as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread worldwide. Like most other synagogues, B’nai Sholom has moved to a virtual platform for services and learning. Our current schedule is below.

Please join in our worship and our studying. On the first two Fridays of every month, our services start at 6:13 PM; on the remaining Fridays, join us at 7:30 PM.

Call us at 518-482-5283 or email office@bnaisholom.albany.ny.us and we will send you information in a confirming email.

We look forward to welcoming you – online now, in-person in the very near future.

–Rabbi David Katz and the officers, trustees and members of B’nai Sholom
