Jewish Community

Baton Rouge Jewish Community

While the Jewish community in Baton Rouge is relatively small, it is quite active. The Jewish community is composed of two synagogues, each of which is affiliated with the Reform movement, in addition to a branch of the Jewish Federation. Congregation B'nai Israel is the oldest synagogue in Baton Rouge, while Beth Shalom Synagogue was founded 65 years ago.

Hillel at LSU is an active part of the Baton Rouge Jewish community. From teaching at religious school to volunteering with each synagogue, Hillel at LSU reaches beyond the LSU campus. Hillel also teams up with BaRFTY, the Baton Rouge Federation of Temple Youth, an affiliate of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth) to host events throughout the year.

New Orleans Jewish Community 

Since New Orleans and Baton Rouge are relatively close, Hillel at LSU also maintains a close relationship with the New Orleans Jewish community. Without the generous support of the Jewish Federation of New Orleans, Hillel at LSU would not be able to host as many events as it does. Hillel at LSU also reaches out to Jewish students at other universities in Louisiana that do not have active Hillel chapters to include them in our events.
