Welcome to Temple B’nai Israel
Welcome! The members of Temple B’nai Israel (TBI) in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, are glad that you have decided to visit our web site. We hope you will find the content on this site informative and useful.
Temple B’nai Israel is a small but warm and vibrant Jewish Reform congregation in the Deep South. We have a beautiful and functional synagogue (see more under History), and we have gathered all our resources in order to engage a full-time rabbi (see more under Rabbi Uri Barnea’s biography) and to provide meaningful services, joyful celebrations, and excellent Jewish education for our children and our adults.
Should you decide to relocate to Hattiesburg or its region, or in the event you are just passing through town, we will be happy to have you join us. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of further help to you.
Larry Leader, TBI’s President
