Enriching lives through community, lifelong Jewish learning and spiritual growth!

Congregation Beth Shalom is a vibrant and engaging egalitarian Conservative Jewish community. Our building, with its magnificent sanctuary, has been a home to countless families for nearly a century. We continue to open our doors and hearts to new members, inviting them to join us as we live and learn Torah together.

 

A Brief Note from Rabbi Seth Adelson:

“Investing yourself in Jewish living will improve your life, our community, and our world! Engagement with our tradition in the context of a synagogue offers us a framework for support: we share our joy in happy times and our grief in challenging times. Our textual heritage gives us contemporary guidance on how to highlight the holiness in our relationships, how to respect the others around us, and how to maintain the balance of Creation. Our prayerful moments offer comfort and introspection, and keep us spiritually grounded. Our lifecycle events celebrate the good and maintain our sense of gratitude for what we have. Our communal and cultural activities keep us connected and vibrant. Bring your whole self to Beth Shalom!”
