Beth Jacob Closed Until Further Notice

Due to concerns related to the Coronavirus, Beth Jacob Congregation has made the difficult decision to cancel all services and programming until further notice. Next update Thursday.

Clarifications on the restrictions:

1. The Weintraub Children's Park and the Beit Midrash are closed as well. The on-site preschool has been informed. Officials world-wide are saying that we need to distance ourselves from each other and not crossover between cohorts (friend and family groups). If anyone needs to get their belongings from Shul, that is ok, but please gather your belongings and exit the building. 

2. We understand that, with good intentions, there are those who have suggested making small independent minyanim. This is also prohibited. The statistics say that we are only extending the spread of the virus by joining together in crossover groups.  "V'Ahavta Lereiacha Kamocha" (treat your friend as you would treat yourself) dictates we must daven in our homes beyichidus (alone).

Tevilas Keilim

The keilim mikvah will be open M-Th from 9:00-11:00am and 3:00-5:00pm. The gate will be unlocked and propped open. The Mikvah cover will be off. No need to touch either. One person only & only one at a time can be within the gate. Please practice social distancing and wait your turn from at least 6 feet away. All items must be ready to dip. There will be no trash can. Must wear a mask & gloves. Thank you.

Our welcoming community, of some one hundred fifty plus families, consists of many Shomer Shabbos, Shomer Mitzvos families as well as those that are less observant. 

With many more participants in our religious, educational, cultural and social activities, we are proud to be "the Orthodox Synagogue for all Jews". We are a diverse community, welcoming of all religious backgrounds.

A few unique features of the synagogue are: a large Beit Medrash program; bi-weekly Lunch and Learn classes; a community Kelim and Women's mikvah; singles programs; lifecycle and family education; adult and youth enrichment programs; communal holiday gatherings, scholar in residence programs and daily programs for older adults, Monday through Friday.

Beth Jacob Congregation, a proud member synagogue of the Orthodox Union, is one of the premier outreach institutions in the county, offering Shabbat hospitality, ongoing chesed activities, and parallel Beginning and Learning Services.

We invite you to experience Beth Jacob and San Diego. We have an open door policy and pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere. Please visit our congregation and enjoy our site.

Beth Jacob has been serving San Diego's Jewish community since 1939 and looks forward to doing so for many years to come.
