President's Message

Welcome to the Temple Beth Shalom (TBS) website! I am pleased to welcome you to our virtual community! We hope that you will take some time to explore our website. It would be our pleasure to answer any questions that you may have, and it would be our honor to have you personally visit our actual community! TBS is a vibrant, engaging Reform Jewish congregation, blessed by the spiritual guidance of our clergy, the dedication of our teachers, and the caring commitment of our professional staff. As you explore our website further, you will note the wide variety of activities and programs that resound through our hallways each day, throughout the year. We are a community of engaged members, involved with worship, learning, Tikkun Olam, Social Action, Tzedek (Social Justice), and caring for one another through Chesed outreach. TBS has active committees (over 30) and Arms (Sisterhood, Brotherhood, Youth โ€“ Etzim /BESTY, Garden Club) that engage members of our community, across the ages โ€“ infants, children, teens, and adults โ€“ in worship, learning, community engagement and social events. We invite you to visit with us.

We are also very proud of our Temple home, newly rebuilt in 2016, which now houses all our learning, worship, administration, and programs in a way that reflects the spirit of our community. I invite you to learn more about TBS through our website, or even better, please join us for a worship service, for an evening of adult learning, or through one of our many activities or events. If you want to learn more about our very special TBS community - please feel free to contact our clergy, staff or a member of our lay leadership team. I look forward to hearing from you or meeting you soon at Temple Beth Shalom!
