Why Memphis?

Memphis has a legendary character. There’s a reason “Memphis” is mentioned  in more song lyrics than any other place on earth! The Memphis Jewish community is unique in its character, too.  We've adapted a special Southern Flair to our traditions - kosher BBQ, anyone? 

Take a look at our synagogues, Jewish agencies, Jewish day schools and opportunities for an active, fulfilling Jewish life.



Be sure to check out this testimonial (published in the Jewish Link of New Jersey) from Yoel Goldblatt, who recently relocated to Memphis with his family from Teaneck.

We love the feeling of acceptance and kindness we have found in Jewish Memphis - there is so much to do and explore in this diverse city!
