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.
We are trying something new: On-Line Shabbat!
In keeping with recommendations to minimize public gatherings, Temple Beth El has moved our regular Shabbat Services to the on-line format using Zoom.
If you would like to join our service on Friday night please send us an email for the code.
We look forward to the day when we can be together in person again, but until then please stay safe and at home.
The Congregation enjoyed a lively Purim celebration on March 6th. Thank you to Shelley and Cathy for the creative decorations, gift bags and child-friendly activities. Thank you also to Sandi for the delicious hamentashen.
Eva Kor Movie
On March 8 the Temple hosted a movie called ,”Eva A-7063” about the life of Holocaust survivor Eva Kor. As a ten-year-old “Mengele Twin”, Eva Kor suffered the worst of the Holocaust, but 50 years later decided to forgive the Nazis. Leah Simpson, Director of the Candles Holocaust Museum and close friend to Eva was on hand to answer questions after the movie.
