About Us


Just check the pages of The Jewish Observer, the ONLY Jewish newspaper covering Middle Tennessee. It is published by the Jewish Federation of Nashville twice a month. You’ll find news of our local congregations and Jewish organizations, interviews with interesting people as well as lifecycle events.  But it doesn’t stop there. There is news of the national and international Jewish communities and, of course, about Israel. Look for special Jewish holiday issues and the annual Simchas/Celebrations, Health & Beauty  and Dining Out special sections.

Our annual Guide to Jewish Nashville is the only comprehensive listing, including contact information, of all the congregations and Jewish organizations in Middle Tennessee. It serves as a handy reference all year long.

To submit an article, to get on the mailing list or for more information, contact the editor, Charles Bernsen, at charles@jewishnashville.org. The paper is mailed free to all members of the Middle Tennessee Jewish community. A subscription is available for a small fee to those who live outside the area.
