The Center of Jewish Life in Northeast Louisiana
Congregation B'nai Israel, fondly known as the "the Temple", is located in Monroe, Louisiana which is on the banks of the Ouachita River and Bayou DeSiard.
The Temple is truly a congregation of volunteers, who put in countless hours because of their love for Judaism and their desire for a strong Jewish community, committed to the values and conduct of the individual, the family and the society in which we live.
As members of the URJ, we extend a warm welcome to all who are seeking a Jewish community built on the fundamental and enduring principles of Reform Judaism.
