Jewish Services

There is no shortage of synagogues in Beer Sheva, and you can easily find one in any neighborhood. But listed below or a few options which have been popular with MSIH students.

  • Kehillat Beerot: Be’erot meets at 6:30 on friday night  (for summers; winter they meet shortly after candlelighting) and 8:00 on saturday morning, as well as on holidays at Beit Yatziv at Ha'atzmaut 79.  They send out announcements via a googlegroup kehilat-beerot. The community is a mix of Ameicans and Israelis, couples with children and single people.  Services are “partnership style”, where men and women sit separately, and women and men each lead certain parts of the service. Contact Sarah Meyers (sarahrmeyers@gmail.com) for more information.
