Welcome to Congregation B’nai Israel. We are a small congregation with a long history. We are affiliated with the Union of Hebrew congregations. However, like many small congregations, our members come from a variety of backgrounds and we strive to make everyone feel at home. We hope that you will find in us your Jewish home and join our congregation. We serve the Golden Triangle of Mississippi – Starkville, Aberdeen, West Point, and Columbus – as well as Western Alabama.
Let us know what your Jewish family can do to help you feel more at home.
