About Us

Congregation Beth Israel is a Modern Orthodox synagogue. We are proud of our multi-generational heritage and over one hundred year presence in the Greater New Orleans Area. Our mission is to create an accessible spiritual home, where all Jews, regardless of affiliation or background, are warmly embraced and welcomed into our greater family. We strive to create meaningful Jewish experiences through worship services, learning opportunities, and social programming that foster personal and spiritual growth. We are building toward the future through active engagement of our existing membership and interaction with the broader community. Keep up with our growing family by registering for our weekly e-mail newsletter or become a member.  Our new synagogue building, which was dedicated in August of 2012 to replace the previous structure which was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina, also serves as a state-of-the-art community center, providing educational, cultural and social opportunities open to all, regardless of religious belief or affiliation. Contact our office to find out how you or your group can utilize our flexible space.     Blackberry Picking at Sasnak Farms (click to enlarge)
