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.
