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.

Interfaith Alliance

We are very grateful  for the huge crowd who attended the Interfaith Alliance event, “The Religion of your Jewish Neighbors and Their House of Worship”. We reached capacity and had to turn a number of folks away, so we will plan to do another event soon. Visitors are always welcome for services on Friday nights at 7:30.  If you have a group that would like to tour the Temple please contact us and we will make arrangements. Our little synagogue is a treasure and we enjoy sharing it with the community.


The holiday of Hanukkah begins at sundown on Sunday, Dec 2nd and continues for 8 days.  The congregation will have a pot luck supper and Hanukkah celebration on Dec 7th at 6:00 pm.
