Welcome to Congregation Beth Shalom of Brandon!

Congregation Beth Shalom is a vibrant, warm and growing Reform synagogue. The only Reform synagogue in Brandon, we provide a home for Jews of all ages and backgrounds. As a small congregation, we value the contribution and participation of each individual member and recognize the diversity that exists in Jewish families today.  

Beth Shalom is a community in which each individual is able to celebrate life’s joys to the fullest and find support during times of loss and pain.   Embracing the richness of Jewish tradition, we seek to help each person find his or her place within that tradition, joining with others who are searching for a path toward fulfilling and joyous Jewish living in today’s modern world. Beth Shalom provides a meaningful spiritual home for people of all ages and levels of knowledge, a place to learn and to question, a place to worship and to celebrate, a place to find a community that cares.

History:  Congregation Beth Shalom was born in the spring of 1990 at an open meeting of 10-15 families from Brandon and the surrounding areas. Beth Shalom was chartered, incorporated and became an integral part of the Brandon Community.

Congregation Beth Shalom moved into our home at 706 Bryan Road in September of 2000, just in time for the High Holy Days. Our synagogue as it now stands houses our Sanctuary, classrooms for the religious school, catering kitchen, offices, and library.

 

Gender Equality: We believe in and will continue to emphasize the equality of gender in all Temple activities. This includes all aspects of worship services such as seating, prayer books, aliyot, Torah reading, etc. Gender equality clearly extends to candidates for Clergy, Staff, Board of Directors, Officers and committee chairs.

 

Inclusion: We welcome and recognize that Jewish families are diverse in many ways. In addition to interfaith families, we welcome single parent families, as well as lesbian and gay Jews and their families. Congregation Beth Shalom seeks to be a warm and inclusive Jewish home to all individuals seeking meaningful Jewish life in today's world.

 

Multi-Generational: We are very proud of the fact that our Congregation Beth Shalom family includes infants, octogenarians and all age groups in between. It makes us truly representative of the Jewish community and is one of the strengths of our Temple.
