Heartfelt Wishes for a Shanah Tova – A Happy & Healthy New Year of 5778!!


Welcome to Congregation Beth Jacob Ohev Sholom (BJOS). We are the Williamsburg address for Modern Orthodoxy – where Torah engages Science; where Theology embraces Philosophy; and where Intellectual Integrity merges with Religious Faith; because Reverence for Hashem (Gcd) means an unwavering commitment to seek Truth wherever it is to be found.

We hope you will join us to ask questions, to deepen your spirituality and enrich every area of your life with the wisdom of Torah.

We offer tefillah (prayer) every morning and evening, and of course on Shabbat and holidays.  We also offer classes, engaging, laid back discussion groups, as well as Scholars-in-Residence and other activities. Please see our calendar for upcoming events.

Besides our long history in Williamsburg, we are most proud of our congregation’s diversity: on any given Shabbat, you’ll discover hipsters and chassidim, singles and marrieds, toddlers and nonagenarians.

We hope you’ll drop in, become part of the mix, and make BJOS your spiritual home.
