We welcome you as you are; In every stage of your life.

Tikkun Middot (personal growth) and Tikkun Olam (healing a broken world).
“Whether taking a class, enjoying a special musical event or feeling enriched after a thoughtful sermon, Temple Sholom is there for me in many ways.”Pamela Narins, Temple and committee member
