Join Us!At Temple Beth Sholom we celebrate community through prayer, study, social action, and perhaps most importantly, simply by celebrating each other. Through smaller communities like our sisterhood, men’s club, various youth and children’s programs, senior programs, and more, TBS provides pathways through which to engage in our large and vibrant synagogue community. Together we create positive Jewish communal moments of joy and connection with one another.
Sisterhood supports our synagogue and community. We offer Adult Education classes, speakers, hands on creative expression and a network of women who enjoy Jewish life. TBS Sisterhood is an award-winning affiliate of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. Whether it’s dropping off Shabbat dinner to bereaved temple families, hosting lunch with entertainment for seniors, running the TBS gift shop, or creating Purim baskets, our Sisterhood makes a difference for so many people. You’ll have your choice of so many activities
The Temple Beth Sholom Men’s Club was founded to serve our congregation and to help improve the quality of Jewish life in our community and the Conservative Movement. It strives to make Judaism dynamic and meaningful for its members through religious, cultural and social activities and programs; to strengthen the Jewish interests and activities of the members of Temple Beth Sholom. It endeavors to advance the ideals and principles of traditional Judaism by cooperating with the general purposes, aims and programs of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Clubs.

Social Action Committee
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when? Hillel – Ethics of the Fathers, 1:
The Temple Beth Sholom Social Action Committee is committed to Tzedek (the Hebrew word for Justice) by:
- educating about and speaking out against anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism wherever it exists
- supporting social justice for all people
- promoting the concept of fair and just relations between individuals and society
Chesed or “Acts of Loving-Kindness” is not considered tzedakah; it is said to be a higher deed than tzedakah because it is the giving of one’s self. When we give tzedakah we can only hope it goes to the greatest good and we never know the effects it may have, but kindness instantly affects an individual and the world. Together we provide for the needs of members of our community during difficult times in their lives.

The Rabbi Ario S. and Tess Hyams Judaica Museum is maintained by our Museum Coordinator, Bat-Sheva Slavin. The museum collection began in 1968 when a committee was appointed to establish the museum, and in the early 1990s the Rabbi Ario S. and Tess Hyams Judaica Museum was rededicated and the Irving Rutenberg Gallery dedicated. We are pleased to hold some very significant items in the TBS Judaica Museum collection.
