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: 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.
