About Us:

Temple Shalom is a welcoming Reform Jewish congregation, affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, that serves the needs of and offers opportunities for interfaith families, Jews-by-choice, and their extended families. We invite our membership in all its diversity to participate in the religious, educational, and communal life of our synagogue. Together we are committed to the ongoing work of building a congregation whose every undertaking is shaped by the Jewish values of:

*Lifelong learning (Torah Lishmah)
*Enriching spirituality (Kedushah)
*Building community (Kehillah)
*Repairing the world (Tikkun Olam)
*Sustaining Jewish Values (Brit Olam)

Our Outreach Committee develops programming and recommendations on policy issues to ensure that Temple Shalom responds positively and sensitively to the particular needs of interfaith families and Jews-by-choice.

Subjects explored in past programs include:
Jewish Practices in Death and Mourning; Choosing Judaism: Questions and Answers About Conversion; Bar and Bat Mitzvah; Experience for Interfaith Families
