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 open for in-person Shabbat Services on Friday nights, and also offer a Zoom option.    Please contact us if you would like the Zoom code.

Passover begins on Monday, April 22 and lasts for 8 days.  We will celebrate as a congregation on April 23.


Barbara Herman Obituary
Barbara Herman was a treasure to our congregation and the community. She touched many lives over four decades teaching Hebrew to students preparing for their Bar and Bat Mitzvah. 


Our remodeling of the back room is now complete.  Please join us in person and see the finished result.


We Stand with Israel

In response to the devastating Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel please join us in support and solidarity. Israel needs our love, support and connections more than ever. Please pray for peace and security for Israel now and in the months ahead.
