About B'nai Zion Congregation

B’nai Zion Congregation was established in Shreveport more than 150 years ago. We are a charter member of the Union of Reform Judaism. As a Reform Jewish congregation, we have deep Jewish roots, with flexibility that suits the needs of modern Jews. Our worship services are filled with inspiration and music. We provide programming, spiritual, social and educational programs for members of all ages. We have a Religious School for children three years old to Confirmation run by an Education Director who has been in our community for generations, an active pre-school group and ShFTY (the Shreveport Federation of Temple Youth - part of NFTY Southern), our teen-age youth group. We offer regular Torah Study, book club meetings, a Sisterhood, and Brotherhood. Our We Care committee provides meals and visits to members who are ill or recuperating. We maintain our own cemeteries. Our Rabbi teaches and guides us, and officiates at all life cycle events, holidays, and is a Spiritual Leader respected in the interfaith community.

We are proud to be a "house of prayer for all people." We are a warm and welcoming congregation where hearts and souls are nourished, friendships are grown, minds are expanded and Jewish life is celebrated!

Whether you are looking for a comfortable Jewish experience, or a place to experience Judaism, please consider B'nai Zion.
