Temple B'Nai Israel       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.

Past Events
B’nai Israel Passover Seder – March 30, 2018
The Sisterhood worked hard to make this a special Passover for our members, friends and guests.
Rabbi Seth Oppenheimer led the Seder with knowledge, humor, and in song
to make our Seder a special experience.

Shabbat Across America – March 9, 2018,
Our temple joined hundreds of synagogues across the continent in taking part in an historic
national Jewish event to celebrate Shabbat with the traditional Shabbat rituals – lighting
candles, Kiddush and Hamotzee. It was an amazing, delicious dinner.

Shabbat/Purim Service & Celebration, March 2, 2018
Purim Celebration was quite an event! It included both food and a play!
Everyone enjoyed participating in a Purim script! Our own ALEPH Rabbinical Student, Seth Oppenheimer
