About this community

There are few Jewish communities in the world like that of Memphis. With 4 different Orthodox shuls that all collaborate and share with each other, everyone is truly welcome and embraced here. Memphis offers tremendous and diverse opportunities in educational, cultural, and social activities while also extending the warm Southern hospitality for which we are famous!

Our community has 2 Jewish day schools – the Margolin Hebrew Academy (Pre-K–12th Grade) and Bornblum Jewish Community School (K-8), as well as several options for Jewish preschool.
