Temple Shalom offers a premier Religious School for students in Pre-K though 12th grade. For adults, our Life-Long Learning program includes Torah and text study (both in person and on-line), Sunday morning study with the Rabbi on a variety of topics and Scholars in Residence in the Fall and Spring.
Our affiliates are an active and important part of our Temple Shalom family. They include our Brotherhood, Sisterhood, Renaissance Group for active adults and L’Chaim Club for Seniors, which we run in partnership with the JCC. In addition we offer both a NFTY affiliated Senior Youth Group (TSHY) and a Junior Youth Group for our children.
The Judaica Gift Shop is located in our temple’s downstairs lobby and is open during Religious School hours and by appointment. The shop features unique and beautiful gift items from Israel and well-known designers of Jewish art. Special orders are welcomed.
Temple Shalom is governed by its elected officers and trustees. Each spring, elections are held at the annual congregational meeting. At this meeting members also receive the budget for the following year, hear the annual reports of each committee, and make necessary decisions.
