Welcome to Savannah and Congregation Bnai Brith Jacob!

Savannah is located about eight miles east of one of the busiest north-south interstates in the U.S., I-95. Our lovely city has also become quite a tourist attraction.  In spite of this, we are a small Jewish community, so we sometimes find ourselves with more requests for home hospitality than we can provide! We welcome visitors wholeheartedly, but if your timing or preferences necessitate hotel accommodations, relax!  We are one of the few orthodox congregations that actually has a variety of hotel options within easy walking distance of the shul!  Those listed below are also within the eruv.

Whether you are traveling to Savannah on business, for pleasure, coming to check out our community, or simply passing through, we are here for you! Savannah is known for its warmth and we invite you to join us for a Shabbos!

To make Shabbos arrangements, please email cheri816@comcast.net with your request. Please include the following information:

1) Names of all guests (and ages of kids)

2) Your requests (Friday night meal, Shabbos day meal, home hospitality)*

*please include any applicable allergy information

3) Name and phone number of your Rabbi as a reference

4) Your contact information


To take advantage of our food service for your stay, please visit the “catering” tab on this website.
