WHAT IS BETH SHALOM: A STATEMENT OF VISION
What Kind of Community is Beth Shalom?
We are an inclusive Jewish community that values meaningful worship, serious study, and Tikkun Olam. We emphasize acceptance of all people and believe that every person brings unique gifts to contribute to our diverse Beth Shalom family.
What Jewish Educational Opportunities Exist at Beth Shalom?
We continue to renew and evolve our efforts to provide for lifelong Jewish learning from early childhood through adult education. We recognize that we are all students and we seek to challenge our members with meaningful and appropriate study relevant to our times.
How Does Beth Shalom Reach Out to the World?
We encourage Tikkun Olam that is relevant to our members, individually and to our congregation collectively. We collaborate with secular and other faith based organizations. We begin in our local community and reach out to impact our global environment and to improve living conditions for all peoples, especially our sisters and brothers in Eretz Yisrael.
How Does Beth Shalom Ensure Its Future?
We strategically plan for our future. We work to expand our membership, promote ongoing leadership development, and maintain financial stability. We recognize that this congregation requires continued support from all members of our synagogue family.
