Welcome to Glacier Jewish Community/B'nai Shalom

If your journey brings you to Northwest Montana, the Glacier Jewish Community/ B'nai Shalom, is here for you!

GJC is Strong & Connected During this Pandemic

Glacier Jewish Community/B'nai Shalom is a community that offers you the opportunity to connect with other Jewish people or people that care about Jewish life. We are a community that connects people who do not all live in one neighborhood with a synagogue building in the middle. We have been a synagogue-without-walls from the beginning of Glacier Jewish Community. We will continue to stay in touch and create close, reassuring connections during these challenging times.

We are here to offer you a sense of connection--to Jewish community, Jewish teachings, Jewish prayer and Jewish values.

We will not be holding in-person gatherings through the end of May.

We are hosting various opportunities to connect with the community online. There are Friday Night Pre-Shabbat Hangouts, Saturday Morning Virtual Shabbat Gatherings, a Judaism 101 course and more. DATES AND INFORMATION TO SUBSCRIBE ARE ON OUR CALENDAR.

We are also planning to create resources for you so that you can host your own Passover seder or join a GJC Virtual Seder online.

If you would like to sign-up for our email newsletter click here While we cannot meet together in one physical space, we WILL be able to connect with each other through telephone and text, email and virtual meeting rooms. If you would like some support and want to connect with Rabbi Francine, click here to send her an email.

Whether you are just visiting, thinking of relocating, or have lived in northwest Montana for decades, we are here for you!
