You’re always welcome at BZBI’s daily Minyan, the only Conservative daily Minyan in Center City. Whether starting your day (weekdays, 7:45 a.m.; Sunday, 9:00 a.m.) or joining in the afternoon (Monday–Thursday, 5:30 p.m.), our Minyan is a great way to make time to connect with God and your fellow Jews!

Our 5:30 minyan features Mincha (afternoon service) during Daylight Saving Time and Ma’ariv (evening service) during the rest of the year.

We first became acquainted to BZBI in 1998 while Chao Chi was immersed in the conversion process. Now with an 8 year old son we both joined and enrolled our son Jakob in Neziner Hebrew School. He has been made to feel as if he has attended the school his entire childhood. We feel blessed by the BZBI community as we spiritually re-engage with God as a family.

—David Riz, Chao Chi Lin and Jakob Riz
