Beth Jacob Congregation of Irvine
Welcome to Beth Jacob Congregation of Irvine
Beth Jacob Congregation of Irvine (BJI) is The Shul of Orange County, CA. We are an innovative and warm Modern Orthodox synagogue, and the only synagogue in the area with up to three minyans a day.
On our campus, we offer a full range of both Ashkenazic and Sephardic services and classes for all ages.
Beth Jacob is home to the first and only Jewish Montessori Preschool in Orange County and a beautiful women's mikveh in a spa-like setting.
With an ever-growing, diverse membership, BJI enjoys a blend of Jews from many different backgrounds. Our mix of Americans, Brits, Europeans, Israelis, Persians, South Americans, Russians, and South Africans creates a unique flavor which permeates our environment, and fosters an atmosphere of cooperation and mutual respect.
