Welcome To Our Temple

 

Temple Shalom invites you to find your spiritual, religious, intellectual and social home here with others who share your values. Our broadest goals are exemplified by Our Mission: Temple Shalom builds holy community, connecting our congregation to one another, to God, Torah, Israel and the Jewish people through worship, study, gathering and community service.

COVID-19 POLICY UPDATED 7/18/2022

With Dallas County and surrounding counties increasing their color designation due to the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron subvariants, Temple Shalom will be temporarily re-implementing its mask policy and eliminate Onegs where members unmask to eat. The best way to safeguard against infection is to adhere to the CDC vaccination guidelines, wear masks when around others, and wash hands frequently. Temple Shalom requires one to be fully vaccinated and symptom free to attend in person events. Members need to stay away if they feel ill for any reason and to mask up for their required time frame following close exposure or infection. If you are a direct contact or symptomatic, please contact your health care provider for testing and treatment options ASAP.

This Tishah B'Av, Act as if There Was No God

This Tishah B'Av, Act as if There Was No God jemerman August 2, 2022

In recent years, it's also a day to mourn other tragedies that have darkened Jewish history - the Romans putting down the Bar Kochba revolt, mass murders of Jewish communities during the Crusades, expulsions from England, France, and Spain in the Middle Ages, and the Holocaust.

Clinging to the Blessings of Jewish Education jemerman August 1, 2022

For the past two years, it has felt like much of what we have valued was sinking and all we could do was watch and grieve. But if we really look back, we realize that there is so much we've learned.

Going Back to School: Easing the Transition for Your Preschooler

Going Back to School: Easing the Transition for Your Preschooler jemerman July 26, 2022

As the sun sets on these long, hot summer days, plans begin to return to school. Buying new clothes and a backpack, but perhaps the most important transition is the one of the child walking into a new classroom and starting a new school year. It can be scary for them and for you!
