Memphis is a big city with a big history; all wrapped up with a small town feel! Yes, there are Jews in Memphis. We have a vibrant community and can’t wait to show it to YOU!
Graceland, Beale Street, Delta Queen, the Peabody Ducks, the Mighty Mississippi…these and many more landmarks create a warm image of Memphis. However, few people realize the long, rich history of the Jewish community in this city. Memphis offers tremendous and diverse opportunities in educational, cultural, and social activities, while extending our famous Southern hospitality and warmth.
The Jewish communal agencies serve every age and need in state of the art facilities with highly professional staff. In this growing and thriving community, Jewish Community Partners is the umbrella uniting every aspect of Jewish Memphis and touching the heart of every Jewish home.
We offer all new Jewish Memphians a welcome bag full of informational resources as well as some local goodies. Our dedicated committee of volunteers will deliver a bag to your home— just contact Miriam Roochvarg at email@example.com to let her know you’re new in town. And in the meantime, check out our Community Directory and Choose Jewish Memphis, and download our Guide to Jewish Memphis.
We want to get to know you and your family! Please fill out our census form. Sharing your complete contact information and demographic information helps us ensure that you find out about community events, and helps us keep track of the demographic makeup of the community so that we can target our programs and services accordingly.
Welcome to Memphis! We hope you love it here as much as we do.
