Welcome to Bendigamos.org

Bendigamos: a new minyan in Amsterdam

  • Bendigamos is the youngest and fastest growing Jewish community in the Netherlands. A warm and welcoming community, which offers everyone the opportunity to fulfil her/his Jewish wishes. So far, we are offering bi-weekly synagogue services on Saturday morning, education for all ages, meals, activities, parties and even full weekends, and you can always come to us with all your Jewish questions. We got started only in June 2015, so if you miss something there is a good chance we will offer it later on.

    Our services and activities attract several dozens of visitors every time, and with different backgrounds and nationalities, it’s a great place to meet new people.

    Bendigamos is an independent organisation that aims to make Judaism more accessible and to make more Jews feel at home in the Jewish community. The Shabbat services at Bendigamos are orthodox-Jewish and according to the ancient Amsterdam-Portuguese rite and everyone is equally welcome, regardless of what you know about Judaism or how you practice it.

    So join us – just like many others – for one of our activities and services and you will certainly feel at ease quickly. You are of course welcome to contact us by e-mail first, if you wonder what you can expect, or for other questions en remarks.

    On this website, you will find news, activities, useful links, Shabbat times and a blog. For the most recent information we would recommend you to subscribe to our Facebook group. You can also e-mail us to request our e-mail newsletter, 2 to 3 times a month.

    See you at Bendigamos!
