Partner in Building our









With tremendous excitement and gratitude to HaShem, Young Israel of Memphis has launched a $3 million capital campaign to build an entirely new Shul.  This effort is the culmination of a dream we have had since Young Israel was first established more than 21 years ago – to build a permanent home and Makom Torah for our Shul.


Our new Shul will be a spacious and tranquil environment that will enhance our davening and the spiritual growth of our Kehila.  An Education Center with a library and numerous classrooms and other spaces for educational programming, children’s activities, and youth groups is a key part of the new facility.  The new building also will include a social hall with a commercial kitchen so we can better accommodate life cycle events and host a broad range of social and community functions.
