Temple Shalom invites you to find your spiritual, religious, intellectual and social home here with others that share your values. Our broadest goals are exemplified by our Mission Statement: To inspire in our congregation an enduring relationship with God, Torah, Israel and the Jewish people through worship, study, gathering and community service.

Effective for the upcoming school year, there will be no religious school tuition for existing members and new members. This reflects the Temple's commitment to strengthening our congregation and our community by reinforcing Jewish education at the heart of our mission.
