Welcome to Temple Beth El – Jefferson City
Our historic building was constructed in 1883 and is the oldest synagogue west of the Mississippi in continuous use.
Shabbat Services are held every Friday night at 7:30 and visitors are always welcome. Our congregation includes 25+ families, with members of all ages. Temple Beth El is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism.
***Currently our services are all on Zoom- Please contact us if you would like the code***
Student Rabbi – Ashley Barrett
We were delighted to have Ashley Barrett, a 4th year rabbinical student, lead our High Holiday Services this Fall. Although the services were virtual, Rabbi Ashley’s beautiful voice and love of Judaism made her seem very close. She did a wonderful job helping us navigate through our first on-line High Holidays.
Zoom Shabbat continues for now
Temple Beth El has temporarily moved our regular Shabbat Services to the on-line format using Zoom. If you would like to join us on Zoom please send an email through the contact form above, and we will be happy to send you the zoom code.
We look forward to the day when we can be together in person again. On a positive note, we have enjoyed seeing many of our former members and physically distant members join us on Friday nights.
