Covid-19 Policies: Temple Shalom has been guided by the Jewish concept of pikuah nefesh (preservation of life), as well as the best advice of doctors, public health experts, and peer institutions, as we strive to support our community and gather safely during the pandemic. Most adult services meet in person and on Zoom. Youth services meet in person only. Other programs are in person unless stated otherwise. Some events may require pre-registration.
We hope to resume offering food after shabbat services (Friday night onegs and Saturday afternoon kiddush lunches) later in spring 2022.

As of April 1, 2022, the wearing of masks is optional at Temple Shalom services and events. Masks continue to be required during Religious School.

We do ask those who have tested positive for Covid-19, or those experiencing certain symptoms, to delay their in-person visits to Temple Shalom. Please adhere to these GUIDELINES regarding when it is safe to join us.

Welcome to Temple Shalom!

Are you looking for a place to worship? A community to belong to? Religious education for your family?

We invite you to take a look around and see if the Temple Shalom community is right for you!

A Conservative Community:

Temple Shalom is an egalitarian Conservative community that embraces the richness of Jewish tradition and thrives on the diversity of members’ backgrounds, family structure, and ideas.

Our members’ lives are enriched through participation in our vibrant and warm Jewish kehilla (congregation) where passion for praying, playing, learning, and tikkun olam (social action) are fulfilled together. We’re a community: we support one another as we all strive to live our value

Come be a part of a Jewish community that feels like family, and shares the joys of each other’s life events.
