B’nai Portland (“Children of Portland”) was founded by Laura Boenisch as a private Hebrew School in 2009. Laura was ordained as a rabbi by the Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute in 2016. Concurrent with Rabbi Laura’s ordination, B’nai Portland made its transition into a full service congregation.

B’nai Portland does not “own” a synagogue building. Our regular Shabbat and Holy Day worship is typically held at the Lunt Auditorium, located in the Lunt Professional Building, 74 Lunt Road in Falmouth.

Many families arrange to hold life cycle events at venues of their choice.
