At Congregation Beth Israel, we pride ourselves on being Meridian, Mississippi's first and only Synagogue. We are a close-knit Reform congregation made from a history of tightly-woven fibers that help define our southern-influenced Jewish heritage. Our congregation and members are led by a spirit of tzedakah (righteous charity) and mitzvot (good deeds) both ritual and ethical in nature as our vehicle for achieving Tikkun Olam (perfecting the world.) Our synagogue is located on 57th Court and 14th Avenue.
There's a lot going on in this little congregation.
