- Ours is an open, moving and evolving concept of living Judaism through music and prayer. We seek to provide a sense of community among our members, to enhance Jewish family life and culture, and to promote the practice of Jewish values and mitzvot, social action and social justice in our daily lives, at home, at work and in our community. Our congregation is led by nationally re-known singer/songwriter, Beth Schafer. Beth has been a part of Temple Shir Shalom since its inception and became it's first full time spiritual leader in 2006. She brings a unique and exciting perspective to congregational life and the worship experience.
