Congregation B'nai Israel Ohev Zedek

Congregation B'nai Israel Ohev Zedek (BIOZ) is a warm and welcoming orthodox shul for people from all walks of life with a love of Torah, Tefillah, community and family. Conveniently located on the corner of Castor Avenue and Solly Avenue, the shul was built in the 1970's by two orthodox shuls (B'nai Israel and Ohev Zedek) to serve as the center of Northeast Philadelphia's modern-orthodox community. Under the guidance of Rabbi Aaron Felder, shlita, the shul has become a hub of Jewish learning with a daily early-morning Daf Yomi, daily evening shiurim, a Friday night "Learning & Chulent" program and a busy learning schedule on Shabbat and Motzaei Shabbat.

The shul prides itself on its youth programs with a "Stay & Play" program for toddlers and young children and a Mini-Minyan for older children during Shabbat morning services as well as youth groups led by local B'nai Akiva madrichim and madrichot on Shabbat afternoon. BIOZ is also host to an abundance of special events, holiday programming for families and children as well as regular social events including our monthly Game Night for all!

BIOZ provides a beautiful and delicious weekly kiddush for everyone following Shabbat davening prepared by our in-house caterer, Black Shirt Caterers. Yom Tov/Shabbat hospitality and Mitzvah Meals (through the sisterhood) are happily provided to shul members upon request.

Located in the heart of Northeast Philadelphia, Congregation B'nai Israel Ohev Zedek is home to a diverse, warm and welcoming community.
