Congregation B’nai Jacob will hold a Tu b’Shvat celebration, with music, wine, cheese, and other snacks, at Hamilton House in downtown Jersey City tonight, February 2, at 7 p.m. It is supported by the Shuster family.

The shul’s leadership recently decided to host a series of monthly Shabbat services, one Friday night and one Saturday morning each month, led by Rabbi Aaron Katz, in downtown Jersey City. The first one was in January. The goal is to reach the growing population of young families and millennials in that area. The shul’s other programs and services, including lunch and learn, Jewish philosophy, and Hebrew, remain in its West Side Avenue building

Hamilton House is at 255 Brunswick St. The entrance is on 10th Street where free parking is available. For more information, call Rabbi Aaron Katz, (305) 607-9062, or email him at
