We are a warm and welcoming Reform synagogue, founded in 1981, by a small family of friends. Our mission is to provide a sacred community for applying study to our lives, enriching our souls, and repairing the world around us. We achieve our mission by offering educational programs for children, youth, and adults, Shabbat and Holiday services, and many engagement activities, such as social action events, landscaping, and supporting our members during times of need.
It is our vision that people of Bet Shalom are empowered by Jewish values, motivated to lead active Jewish lives, and are enabled to contribute to a better world. Every congregant has access to the benefits of what Bet Shalom has to offer and, as a result, will thrive as a member of our community.
In October 2018, the Bet Shalom Board of Trustees approved a strategic plan for the future of the congregation. This plan centers around four key themes that actually make up our mission statement.
Kehilah Kedosha: Building Sacred Community
Create deep relationships by connecting people wherever they gather
Talmud Torah: Applying Study to Our Lives
Support our members’ lifelong Jewish learning
Tikkun HaNefesh: Enriching Our Souls
Deepen members’ connection to Judaism and how it informs and enriches their lives.
Tikkun Olam: Repairing The World
Serve as model members of society–locally and globally.
