Temple B’nai Abraham is a small but diverse Jewish community located in historic Bordentown, New Jersey. Our community is both progressive and traditional, enjoying a rich Jewish heritage and history. We are a Reconstructionist congregation and are open and welcoming to all who join.
Temple B’nai Abraham is a Reconstructionist congregation dedicated to creating a caring and inclusive community, and to enhancing Jewish life through learning and communal activities. We view education for ourselves and our children as fundamental to Jewish life. We do this in order to enhance our own lives as contemporary Jews and to perpetuate our bond and our children’s bond to our heritage.
In order to reach our goals, we recognize the need to explore and experience community from various approaches. We believe that the focused evolution of our Jewish community may occur in a beneficial manner if we endeavor to continue to provide a variety of social, religious, experiential, and educational services for our members. In doing so, we hope to develop connections to other Jewish people and Jewish communities.
We strive to preserve and develop Jewish traditions by merging past and present in a spirit of democracy, participation, egalitarianism, and creative thought within a Reconstructionist framework.
We endeavor to provide excellence in Jewish education. In doing, so we hope to pass on our values and traditions to future generations of Jews. It is our desire to provide a viable center of living Judaism where people can find meaning in worship. In this way we create, grow and protect connections to God, Judaism, and community.
