- Am Shalom’s mission, as a Reform congregation, is to engage, enlighten, embrace and educate our members in ways that build a sense of community, while respecting individual forms of expression and belief. We seek to explore our Jewish roots, awareness and values, and enrich the spiritual lives of our members, while serving humanity through social action. We strive to offer educational and spiritual opportunities that will connect with congregants of all ages and diverse interests and backgrounds. Our social action programming and community service recognizes not only the needs of the Jewish community, but those of the community at large, in our continual efforts to engage in Tikkun Olam (world repair.) Individuals and families who want to know more should contact our Executive Director, Edward Alpert, email@example.com or 847-835-4800.
