President’s Welcome Message

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.

Whether you are looking to enhance your worship experience, create lasting relationships with others, provide a strong educational base for your children or continue your own lifelong learning, or to work to improve the lives of others locally and across the world, Temple Shalom is the place for you.

We hope you will come add your voice, your laughter, and your energy to an already vibrant Reform Jewish environment. We welcome you to Temple Shalom and we look forward to sharing many simchas together for years to come.


Rodney Schlosser, Temple Shalom President
