A Reform Congregation Since 1885
In Jackson, Tennessee, pride abounds in our southernness and Judaism. We are a community in all aspects of the word. This is a place where everyone knows each other's name and Shabbat dinner is shared as one family.
For over 125 years, the congregation has continued its vital role of weaving our rich culture throughout this community. Our beautiful, stately structure has graced the corner of West Grand and Campbell streets since 1941. We are small, welcoming Reform congregation of about 30 families overflowing with a rich history dating back to 1885.
Shabbat services are held every Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the beautiful sanctuary, which was completely restored in April of 2000. These services are a treat, simply in their variety, as they are led by members of the congregation. In true Jewish and southern tradition, this congregation combines faith and community in every aspect. Following Shabbat services, the congregation joins together for a friendly informal dinner at a local restaurant.
Rabbi Jordan Parr comes to us from Texas, periodically from September-June, to conduct services beginning at 7:00 p.m. Friday evening. His responsibilities include preparing B'nai Mitzvah students, as well as counseling members on personal, spiritual, and ethical matters. Following Rabbi Parr's Friday evening service, we celebrate Shabbat with an Oneg Shabbat. He also conducts Shabbat morning Torah Study and a catered Saturday evening Adult Education gathering where we finish with an intimate Havdalah Service.
