B'nai Israel Living History Synagogue Mission

To preserve the legacy of one of the oldest synagogues in Eastern Nebraska and Western Iowa by contextualizing the role Jewish people played in the larger history of this region, and by providing our community opportunity for connection and growth.

Our Values

Our congregation is currently unaffiliated with any recognized national movements. 

Our services combine a range of Jewish traditions, ancient and modern, welcoming Jewish people along side those from any walk of life.
