“an active, warm and inclusive community”

For more than 50 years, BTBJ has been a vital center for Jewish Life in our community. We are a modern, full-service Conservative synagogue with an active, warm and inclusive congregation. Serving approximately 300 families and ever growing, we offer an endless array of religious, educational and social activities.

Located in the Northwestern suburbs of Philadelphia, our membership draws from many diverse neighborhoods. Our congregants are actively involved in our many clubs and groups, strengthening family values, fostering new friendships, serving our synagogue and giving back to our community.

BTBJ is privileged to have Rabbi Saul Grife and Hazzan Arlyne Unger as our dedicated spiritual leaders. They are committed to our families and congregants and to creating a unique environment where everyone feels connected. Please contact Executive Director Valarie Hurwitz for more information about our community.

We are proud of our past. We look forward to our future.
We welcome you to be part of our New Beginnings and Timeless Traditions.

Pesach 2014

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to send you several inspiring pieces to assist in your Pesach
Seder preparation
. They include songs, reflections and historical pieces.
We have utilized them in our Seders throughout the years and have found them
fun and uplifting. I hope they help you with creating joyous and meaningful
Sedarim. Please call me if I can be of further assistance with your Pesach

The Grife family wishes you and yours a Hag Sameach. a happy, healthy and
sweet Pesach!

Rabbi Saul I. Grife
