Congregation B’nai Amoona is a fully egalitarian Conservative Synagogue where spiritual experiences, educational opportunities and warm fellowship are its lifeblood. Spearheaded by Senior Rabbi, Carnie Shalom Rose, his vision and leadership enable his outstanding professional staff to create, plan support and implement a myriad of inclusive programming for every age. Preschoolers to senior adults are experiencing spirituality, education and programming as never before.

B’nai Amoona is proud of its Minyannaires program which guarantees Minyan twice daily, in the morning and evening. Shabbat Services are especially welcoming as there are at least three services to choose from, each week.

Children in Kindergarten through 12th grade attend Pardes which combines Hebrew and religious studies in an integrated program meeting twice weekly. The Early Childhood Center offers programs for infants through pre-kindergarten. The Al Fleishman Day Camps, B’nai Ami and Ramot Amoona, are modeled after Camp Ramah and keep children in preschool through 6th grade busy all summer with a nurturing innovative Jewish learning experience. Our B’nai Amoona United Synagogue Youth (BAUSY) is a regionally award winning chapter offering programs for children beginning in the 3rd grade all the way up to 12th grade. B’nai Amoona and The Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School share a special relationship as they are housed on the same campus.

Adult Education is a high point. Topics change often availing the program to a wide variety of interests.

Auxiliary groups are very active at B’nai Amoona. Sisterhood and Men’s Club have programs throughout the year. The Award Winning Social Action committee is always knee deep in Tikkun Olam bringing everyone together to help those in need.

B’nai Amoona is a Kosher institution and employs its own Masgichah to supervise Kashrut. In addition, B’nai Amoona is the only Conservative Synagogue in St. Louis that maintains its own cemetery, located in University City.

B’nai Amoona serves approximately 800 families, in a warm, friendly and spiritual atmosphere. Jews by birth and by choice as well as Interfaith couples are invited to affiliate as members and be a part of the B’nai Amoona Experience.
