Come in and feel welcome at Congregation Bene Shalom!

Our philosophy of Reform Judaism links our warm, modern, and vibrant synagogue of today with a rich and ancient heritage.

Congregation Bene Shalom responds with sensitivity to the needs of the contemporary Jewish family. Our services are filled with music, prayer, and inspiring sermons. We are committed to providing the full richness of Judaism to all people: Jews of all denominations, interfaith families, deaf, and hearing. In addition to weekly Shabbat and holiday services, bi-monthly Kabbalistic Services are very popular, thanks to the wise and loving presentation by Rabbi Goldhamer.
