Toward A Strong Reform Jewish Future for Baton Rouge

Joint Synagogue Exploratory Committee

Congregation B’nai Israel and Beth Shalom Synagogue are currently engaged in discussions regarding the future of the Baton Rouge Jewish community and possible consolidation of our two congregations.

👋 Shalom, I’m Rabbi Appel.

“We have opportunities to experience the sweetness of learning for all ages. We support and sustain each other through celebrations and challenges. We are working to help the next generation develop into mensches, the amazing people we know they can be.”
