Congregation Beth Shalom was formed in 1994 as the result of a merger between the Reform Temple, Mt Sinai, and the Conservative Synagogue, Shaare Zion. Our Congregation embraces all branches of Judaism and is an integral part of Jewish life in Sioux City. The Congregation is very financially secure.
Sioux City is a historic gem in the rolling hills of a state park along the Missouri River where Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota meet. It is just over an hour to Omaha, Nebraska and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Twice named an All-America City by the National Civic League, voted the #1 State to retire in, and designated as an Iowa Great Place, Sioux City, Iowa serves as the regional hub for business, employment, industry, retail trade, medical care, tourism and educational opportunities. More than 169,000 people live in the tri-state metropolitan area. Come experience the many cultural, entertainment and outdoor activities of the Siouxland area. It is a family-oriented, calm environment that will offer a relaxing place to lead our congregation, study and teach.
