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 (Fridays at 6:13 PM) and our studying.

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
