Welcome to Temple Beth Shalom…Jewishly Warm and Relevant

We are proud to provide a safe and sacred space for all Jews and interfaith families without regard to race, gender, or other barriers to love. Our community is part of the reform Judaism tradition where spiritual discovery, educational richness, loving-kindness, and personal responsibility are developed to better ourselves, our children, and the world which we all share.

In addition to regular weekly and holiday services, we host b’nai Mitzvah training, children’s education, enrichment programs (including adult Hebrew, crafts and informative discussions on a wide range of topics) and a post b’nai mitzvah group..

For 75 years, Temple Beth Shalom has taught and practiced Tikkun Olam, allowing our families and friends to join in healing the world.
