Shalom Y'all Community
Part of the South District

Serving Congregations in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida Panhandle

Shalom Y'all! It's not just how we greet you in our URJ Community, it's also who we are. Our community is made of the URJ member congregations in Georgia and Alabama, as well as those in Nashville, TN, and Chattanooga, TN. One thing we all have in common is a welcoming spirit. Some of our congregations are in big cities, but many are spread out throughout our community, where Jewish congregations are spread out and it can be easy to feel isolated, but when we get together, our tradition of "Southern hospitality" enables strangers to quickly become friends and even the most remote of our congregations knows they are not alone.
