Shalom Chaverim! Shalom Chaverim!
It is with a full heart and sheer excitement that I extend to you and your family greetings and well wishes on behalf of all of us at Temple Shalom.
Temple Shalom is a warm, loving and nurturing home for anyone interested in seeking connections with other people, with programs and projects in our community, with the deep and rich heritage of our people and, ultimately, with God. Our Temple seeks to enrich all of the lives of our family through the three historic aspects of synagogue life; a house of prayer, a house of study and a place for meaningful gathering.
Welcome to Temple Shalom!
Ask a member of the Temple Shalom community why they chose this congregation as their spiritual home and you will likely hear words such as caring, welcoming, connection, and inclusion. These words are descriptors of a community rooted in the values of Reform Judaism and reflect the efforts put forth to achieve our mission to inspire in our congregation an enduring relationship with God, Torah, Israel and the Jewish people through worship, study, gathering and community service.
Founded in 1965, Temple Shalom is a proud member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), the largest Jewish movement in North America, and we embrace the central tenets of the movement – social justice, deepening Jewish learning and experiences, connecting to Israel, and creating an inviting, diverse, and accepting community of Reform Jews and interfaith families.
Thank you for considering Temple Shalom as your congregation. Temple Shalom’s Brotherhood has fun as well as providing crucial support to our Temple and to our Temple Youth Programs throughout the year.
Our Temple Shalom Brotherhood and the Men of Reform Judaism are partners in strengthening our ties, and our children’s ties, to our Jewish heritage and traditions.
Temple Shalom Sisterhood is a vital auxiliary to our Temple family. Being a part of Sisterhood and Women of Reform Judaism, helps strengthen our congregation’s families, our congregation and, we hope, your life.
