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.

Annual General Meeting

Please note that the by-laws specify that nine members constitute the full board. At the present time there are five Board vacancies as members will rotate off the board after having served their two year term. These five new board members must be approved by a formal vote of the membership at the AGM. Board members who are continuing their current terms for another year are Anna Berdy, Michel Hassan, Warren Morten, and Ilan Wolf; Basil Luck will continue as past president as a non-voting member of the board.

Family membership will entitle both spouses to vote, but not dependents. Single membership entitles the individual to vote. Each member may vote for a maximum of 9 candidates. Cumulative voting is permitted with a maximum of 3 votes for any individual candidate.

Shul members who will be unable to attend the AGM but who wish to vote for directors  may do so via a proxy vote or absentee ballot. Absentee ballots must be delivered to the Shul office by 4:00pm on Friday, March 28, 2015.
