Welcome to Congregation Beth Shalom!

Celebrating 25 years of Jewish Community in Brandon! We are a URJ affiliated synagogue and encourage you to come see what we are all about!

Second Annual CBS Retreat

Our Second Annual CBS Retreat in March 2015 was another great success! A wonderful day of fellowship in the great outdoors!

Chanukah Celebration

Each year we celebrate Chanukah with a community Chanukiot lighting. The joy in children young and old at the beautiful, glowing menorahs is a special part of Chaunkah for our community!

Sounding Shofar

Our youth fully participate in all Jewish holidays. Each year students 'audition' to sound shofar during Rosh HaShanah.

Special Guest Philip Gans

Rabbi Torop and Past President Hank Mart with Mr. Gans, a Holocaust survivor, who spoke to a standing room only crowd as part of our Yom HaShoah program. Each year we host multiple guest speakers and scholars-in-residence to provide in-depth, personal learning experiences.

Confirmation Classes

Confirmation allows our teens to develop their own Jewish identities and strengthen their bonds with Jewish friends – all while having fun!

Fun for Torah Tots!

Our preschool program is called “Gan Shalom – We Help Your Children Grow”. It includes Sunday morning activities with the rabbi, special craft and holiday projects, brief Shabbat services just for our young members with songs, stories and instruments, pot luck dinners and family discussions.

Dancing with the Torah!

We love to celebrate all the joy and beauty of our traditions together as a community.

B'nai Mitzvah

As a small congregation, we are able to make each child’s Bar and Bat Mitzvah an occasion of meaning, emphasizing Jewish values of learning(Torah), worship(avodah) and deeds of kindness(gemilut chasadim). We believe that B’nai Mitzvah is an important event for the entire family and we welcome all kinds of families to take this important journey with their children.
