New Member Info

Choosing a synagogue family is one of the most important decisions that one can make. The right synagogue choice can make all the difference in the world whether a "new" location is really a "home". Whether you are new to the Chattanooga area or have been a resident for several years, B'nai Zion's doors are always open. We want to welcome you home.

Since 1888, B'nai Zion Congregation has provided multiple generations with the opportunities and experiences to promote Jewish enrichment of our families. We look forward to serving our next generation with vibrant religious school education programming and adult instruction that is not only engaging, but exciting and empowering. Our Men's Club, Sisterhood and multi-interest Chavarot foster the true spirit of Ruach. This ties us closer together not only as a synagogue family but as a community.

Whether B'nai Zion Congregation is right for you and your family, is a decision only you can make. Let us help you in making your important decision by contacting us directly at 423-894-8900 or by email at shul@bzcongregation.com for more information.
