- Shirat Hayam, which means "Song of the Sea," is a small Reconstructionist congregation serving several South Shore towns that was established in 1996. Shirat Hayam is an especially welcoming congregation with many interfaith families in our membership. For our synagogue and our religious school we share a building with Marshfield United Methodist Church. Congregation Shirat Hayam is an inclusive, open-minded, and friendly congregation offering rich spiritual, educational, and social opportunities to a diverse Jewish community. We are grounded in and observant of tradition, guiding our young and learning from our elders, dedicated to creating and maintaining an open, dynamic, spiritual, and participatory membership.
