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.

We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive congregation, but in the current heightened security environment, we require all attendees to be registered prior to entering the South Street Temple. If you are new to our community and would like to attend in-person services please contact office@southstreettemple.org by noon on Thursday to sign up.  We realize that not everyone will be comfortable or able to attend services in person yet, so we will continue to live stream our services for congregants and guests that prefer to participate virtually.

The Temple office is also on reduced hours until further notice. Please call 402-435-8004 or email office@southstreettemple.org  for further information or to make an appointment for a visit, if necessary.

Other Shabbat and Holiday Worship information can be found on our Worship page.

Check the Calendar page for what’s happening this week.

Streaming is available for all of our services.

The Blessings of Adult Education: Far More than Knowledge sdolgov August 9, 2022

Lifelong learning, however, can be easier said than done. For many, as they enter adulthood, with its competing demands and obligations, setting aside time for learning – and especially for Jewish learning – can be challenging indeed.

One of the Greatest Love Stories of My Life

One of the Greatest Love Stories of My Life sdolgov August 9, 2022

On this Tu B’Av, may we all seek out those people who are on our team through despair and delight, who can forgive and seek forgiveness, who see us for who we truly are and support us on the journey to becoming whoever we will someday be. And if your Valentine’s Day candy stash has run out, send those you love a note of sweetness and gratitude instead. Happy Tu B’Av!

Staying Connected After the B’nei Mitzvah: a Teen’s Perspective

Staying Connected After the B’nei Mitzvah: a Teen’s Perspective jemerman August 8, 2022

A common sentiment among Jewish-affiliated teens seems to be, after your b'nei mitzvah, religious school is over, right? Sure, you might come back for confirmation in a few years, but there's no real reason to stay involved. You're Jewish. You know that, your family knows that, and your friends know that. Staying involved is kind of a waste of time. Right? Actually, no. Even if you've had your b'nei mitzvah, there are benefits to staying involved with your Hebrew School and your religious education.
