Services at Beth Jacob

Alameda County recently lifted its local masking Health Officer Order and re-aligned with the State's Face Masking Guidance.

In keeping with those local and state guidelines, Beth Jacob will no longer require masks indoors. The Reopening Committee notes that COVID is still circulating at high levels in our communities and everyone should exercise caution.

The Committee strongly recommends wearing a mask in indoor public settings, including the Beth Jacob Sanctuary and Upstairs Social Hall, to protect the wearer and those around them from infection and long COVID.


Adult Learning


Daily Divrei Torah

Short Divrei Torah on the Parsha by Rabbi Albert follow every morning service, and Rav Shua shares five-minute explanations of our prayers after every weekday Maariv service.

[Hiatus] Parsha and Potato Kugel with Rav Shua

Every Thursday at 7:00 PM after evening services at Beth Jacob, we’ll dig into our favorite Torah portions as well as fresh potato kugel in this weekly class that explores the Torah portion through traditional commentators.

Women’s Tefillah Group Mondays @ 9:15-10:15am

Start your week off with a boost of spirituality while connecting with other BJC women. No Hebrew or Tefillah experience needed. Join us every Monday in the Small Sanctuary to connect to HaShem together. Bring singing voices, inspirational thoughts and instruments! Questions can be directed to Meira at

Lunchtime Talmud

Thursdays 12:00PM

Lunchtime Talmud is in person at the home of Allison Kent Weiss and Paul Weiss.  The class will continue as a hybrid with the regular Zoom link available for those who cannot be in person. Click here to join.
Our weekly Talmud shiur, 30 years in the running, still makes learning Talmud feel fresh for both beginners and those with experience. This year, we are tackling Masechet Gittin, discussing the laws of religious divorce, witnesses, and rabbinical courts.
