Welcome to Congregation B’nai Jeshurun ~ The South Street Temple.
We are dedicated to social action in accordance with the Jewish tenet of tikkun olam, repairing the world.

A Message from the Board of Trustees, Congregation B’nai Jeshurun – The South Street Temple:

“This week the South Street Temple was vandalized with antisemitic graffiti. We are grateful for the support we have received from the Lincoln Police Department, Anti-Defamation League, elected officials, inter-faith community and many others.

We know, of course, that the vicious hate which led someone to vandalize our building is part and parcel of the increase in anti-Semitism we have seen around the world. It would be naive to think that anti-Semitism would somehow spare us here in Lincoln. Our community has work to do. And we are and will be vigilant. But we will not be afraid. We will not cower in fear. We will continue to raise our voices in prayer, in song, and sometimes in protest.

So, yes, our doors will be open this Friday night for Shabbat Services. We would be delighted to welcome you to our beautiful synagogue (2061 South 20th Street), and to be able to thank you for the empathy, friendship, and support we have felt so powerfully. Services will begin at 6:30 PM.”

If you would like to donate any amount at all to help us remove the graffiti and restore our front doors, you can do so here.
