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.

Special Notice:

Beth Shalom sends condolences to the members, families, and friends of the congregations of Tree of Life: Tree of Life Congregation, Dor Hadash Congregation, and New Light Congregation.

We are honored to share our space.  Friday night, in addition to our regular service at 6:00 p.m., New Light Congregation will have their service at Beth Shalom at 7:30 p.m. in the Helfant Chapel, and Dor Hadash Congregation will have their service at 7:30 p.m. in the Homestead Hebrew Chapel.

Shabbat morning, in addition to Beth Shalom’s service at 9:15 a.m., New Light Congregation will have their service in the Helfant Chapel at 9:45.

We will be rescheduling our Shabbat Shi’ur from last week to some time in the future, speaker Richard Piacentini, from the Phipps Conservatory, who will be discussing the solar energy installation there and hopes for other solar initiatives.

Security

In recognition of recent events, Beth Shalom is increasing its security measures and identifying future changes to procedures and facilities. There will be security guards and local police around the building and volunteers will be greeting you as you enter. Please enter through the entrance on Shady Avenue (for accessibility), or from the roundabout on Beacon Street – no other entrances will be open. Although this may be an inconvenience for some, please remember that we are trying to balance your security with a welcoming atmosphere.
