Welcome Families with Young Children!

Welcome Families with Young Children!

Welcome to the Congregation Beth Shalom website … Here is some information for families like you!

Congregation Beth Shalom is the spiritual home to more than 1000 member families, and the largest Conservative synagogue on the North Shore. We are dedicated to promoting family and community through Limud (study), Tefillah (prayer), and Tzedakah (acts of justice and loving kindness). We are a strong and diverse congregation and think of ourselves as a large family and a place people comfortably call their “home away from home.”

You can see the wide range of programs that we have for ALL ages by visiting our calendar.

You can also subscribe to our FYC (Families with Young Children) email list here.
