Congregation Beth Shalom (CBS) is a vibrant, warm and diverse Reform synagogue. As the only Reform synagogue in the Greater Brandon area, we provide a home for Jews of all ages and backgrounds as well as interfaith families As a small, personable congregation, we value the contribution and participation of each individual member and recognize the diversity that exists in Jewish families today, whether married, single parent or just singles.

CBS 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 towards a fulfilling and joyous Jewish way of life in today’s modern world. CBS 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.

We emphasize the equality of gender as well as the equality of the LGBTQ community in all congregational activities. This includes all aspects of our worship services as well as our being on our Staff, Board of Directors and Committees.

CBS is the warm and inclusive Jewish home to all individuals seeking meaningful Jewish life in today’s world. We are very proud of the fact that our Congregation Beth Shalom family includes infants, nonagenarians and all age groups in between. It makes us truly representative of the Jewish community and is one of our strengths.
