Our Mission Statement

Temple Sholom is a Reform congregation dedicated to promoting the fundamental and enduring principles of Judaism and ensuring the continuity of the Jewish people through practices of inclusiveness, openness and individual autonomy.

In carrying out our mission, we reflect the tenets of Reform Judaism as we seek to provide a warm, welcoming and supportive environment for our diverse Temple family by:

  •     Enabling members to develop their own relationship with God through communal worship, music, study of Torah and the celebration of holiday and life-cycle events
  •     Honoring Jewish traditions, rituals and beliefs of the past for their wisdom and insight while exploring new and creative ways of expressing the Jewish experience
  •     Promoting a strong sense of Jewish identity and continuity for individuals and families through innovative educational programming
  •     Employing social activism to work for the betterment of our local, national and global communities with the goal of Tikkun Olam (repairing our world)
