Breastfeeding at BSBI (Brith Shalom Beth Israel Synagogue), Charleston, SC

BSBI (Brith Shalom Beth Israel Synagogue) in Charleston, South Carolina, USA

Breastfeeding in the Sanctuary:

Breastfeeding is not permitted in the sanctuary.

Private Nursing Locations:

There is a nursing room near the sanctuary and the bathrooms.  One would likely need to ask someone where it is.  Furthermore, one looking to use the nursing room will need to ask the janitor to open the room- it is mostly an older congregation, so breastfeeding is not very common.

Other Information:

No information about this synagogue’s breastfeeding policy is made public.

Genera Child Friendliness:

There are changing tables in both the women’s and the family/children’s bathrooms.  There is no particular place to put strollers, but there is space for children’s needed supplies near the clothing rack.  The main service is very friendly to children. There is a babysitting room available, but children are also welcome in the sanctuary.


This synagogue received a rating of “Okay, it is just workable enough- 4” out of 7, where 1 is the best rating, and 7 is the worst.
