Beth Sholom was founded in 1955 in order to establish Conservative Judaism in Memphis. It was the first new synagogue in the community since 1905. It is the only congregation in Memphis that is traditional and fully egalitarian. Beth Sholom is affiliated with the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism.
Beth Sholom is a young, dynamic congregation. There is a friendly atmosphere in the synagogue and everyone is warmly welcomed. Shabbat morning services begin at 9:15 a.m. Beth Sholom offers a comprehensive Shabbat Morning program for preschool through the seventh grade. We offer religious school education, as well, for kindergarten through 7th grade and have an active teen program as well. Daily evening services are held Sunday through Thursday at 6:00pm Sunday morning services are at 8:00am and Wednesday and Thursday services begin at 7:00 a.m. Please check the Beth Sholom website for details on our service times as well as all programs.
Beth Sholom has an active Sisterhood and a Men’s Club. There are a variety of social groups for members of the congregation. There is an Lifelong Jewish learning program which arranges for special classes throughout the year, including but not limited to bi-monthly Lunch and Learn, an annual retreat, and a special visiting scholars program. The congregation is also involved in an array of social action programs. Beth Sholom maintains its own cemetery.
