Title

Congregation Micah (Brentwood - Davidson County)

Description

Congregation Micah was established in the 1990s and is Nashville's youngest Reform congregation. By the early 1990s, Congregation Ohabai Sholom boasted a membership of over 1,000 families. However, disagreements over intermarriages drove a wedge between the congregants. In 1992, a small group left The Temple and established Congregation Micah. By 1997, the group had secured funding and property for the construction of a new synagogue and cemetery in Brentwood. Though a young congregation, Micah serves about 500 members and offers religious, educational, and social services, as well as Jewish burials at the congregation's cemetery.
