Who We Are

Temple Shalom is a warm and inclusive community with members from throughout the Metrowest Boston area who aspire to find meaning and fulfillment in the practice of Reform Judaism. We believe that this meaning and fulfillment flows from a personal engagement with the living tradition of Judaism. We invite our membership in all its diversity to participate in the religious, educational and communal life of our synagogue.

Become Involved Our Community
We would love to help you connect to people and program opportunities at Temple Shalom.  For more information contact Caroline Dorn, Membership & Engagement Coordinator. 

Our Vision
As a congregational family, Temple Shalom is committed to making each person feel welcome and at home. We do this in a personal way by getting to know each member of our community, one at a time, and in doing so help everyone find a place in Temple Shalom’s dynamic and supportive Jewish community.

Our Values
We participate together in the religious, educational and communal life of our congregation as we live the values of:

    - Lifelong Learning  (Torah Lishmah)
    - Enriching spirituality (Kedushah)
    - Building community (Kehillah)
    - Repairing the world (Tikkun Olam)
    - Deepening our relationship with Israel (Klal Yisrael)
    - Sustaining Jewish continuity (Brit Olam)
We are a community that values inclusion and welcomes interfaith families.

Our Clergy
In 2018, Rabbis Allison Berry and Laura J. Abrasley were installed as our co-Senior Rabbis. Temple Shalom is the first congregation ever to be co-led by two senior female rabbis.

In 2019, Cantor Leah Shafritz joined our clergy team following her ordination from Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion.
