Welcome to Congregation B’nai Israel!Reform Fairfield Jewish

Congregation B’nai Israel is a longstanding cornerstone of Jewish life in the Greater Bridgeport area. While we were founded over 160 years ago, our strength lies in our willingness to look to the future. Our building includes a Sanctuary, Chapel, social hall with adjacent pavilion, library, Judaica Shop and an education center with classrooms for both preschool and religious school. What truly makes us special, however, are the people who belong here. We pride ourselves in being a place where a diverse intergenerational community forms long-lasting friendships, enriches their lives through shared learning, celebrates joyous occasions,and supports one another in times of need.

If you need the Zoom link for an event, you can find it in the weekly email that is sent to the congregation.
