Congregation B'nai Israel

Congregation B'nai Israel in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, is one of the oldest Reform congregations in the United States and is located in the beautiful Garden District. They are an active and vibrant Reform Jewish congregation with a diverse membership and leadership that fully respects that diversity.

They have a rich history and legacy, and a membership that looks towards a vibrant future. Congregation B'nai Israel has served 200 Jewish families over 150 years. For so many, the congregation is their Jewish Community Center because it offers a wide variety of religious, cultural, educational and social programs and activities.

Although Jews make up a small percentage of the population of Baton Rouge, Congregation B'nai Israel is known for their activism in city affairs, and many of their members are involved and influential in important areas of civic life.

Beth Shalom Synagogue

Beth Shalom Synagogue is a Reform congregation and a member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).

They are a “family style” shul with a hamish, relaxed atmosphere. Their joy in expressing Judaism is exponentially increased when shared with their congregational family. The essence of the shul family is truly the sum of the uniqueness and diversity of its members.

Beth Shalom Synagogue strives to embody the meaning behind the Hebrew word for synagogue, "beit knesset," or house of meeting. For many they are a home away from home, as much a place for meeting and getting to know one another as for learning and prayer.

Temple Shalom

Temple Shalom is a member of the Union for Reform Judaism, and one of 291 congregations under 100 members. Their leadership attends regional and national meetings, and takes advantage of the many services provided by the Union. By supporting Temple Shalom, you are ensuring that the future of the Jewish community in Acadiana will continue for many more generations.

Temple Shalom offers a Reform Jewish community with opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, lifelong learning, and social interaction. They are a diverse community, rooted in tradition, yet moving towards the future. As such, we welcome young and old members of Acadiana who practice Judaism, seek to explore Judaism, and/or are interfaith families seeking to honor and support the Jewish elements of their family identity. They wish to inspire individuals to strengthen their identities as part of Am Yisrael (the Jewish People) and to participate actively in our Jewish community.

Chabad of Baton Rouge

Chabad is an international movement dedicated to aiding every single Jew in connecting to our heritage. The inspiration and guiding force to this movement is the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson of righteous memory. He shared his love towards G‑d and the Jewish nation with his followers, his Chassidim, resulting in Chabad outreach. Chabad in the greater Louisiana area now has four centers.
