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.

Recordings of our 2020 High Holy Days services are also available.

The More Torah, The More Life

The More Torah, The More Life jstern September 23, 2021

When I became rabbi of Monmouth Reform Temple in Tinton Falls, NJ, I quickly discovered that some people in our community thought we were a church. Mail was addressed to “Monmouth Reformed Temple,” and letters were addressed “Dear Pastor.”

Creation, Chaos, and Children

Creation, Chaos, and Children jstern September 17, 2021

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was unformed and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God hovered over the face of the waters. God said: “Let there be light.” And there was light.

Sukkot Breads in Fall Colors

Sukkot Breads in Fall Colors jstern September 13, 2021

Decorate your Sukkot table with Ethiopian, North African, and Sephardi breads full of fall colors and tantalizing spice mixes and broaden our palates to the customs of worldwide Jewish communities. Laden with seasonal honey, pumpkin, or orange, they don’t need braiding, and they make perfect gifts.

7 Jewish Endeavors to Make 5782 a Sweet New Year

7 Jewish Endeavors to Make 5782 a Sweet New Year jstern September 13, 2021

It’s a long-standing custom for Jews to wish one another a “sweet new year” on Rosh Hashanah; to hope that this coming year will be one filled with joy, fulfillment, and an abundance of blessings. However, Judaism isn’t a path focused simply on wishing for good things; if our goal is to make each year “sweeter” than the last, we must work to make it happen.
