Congregation Beth Shalom is a vibrant, warm, and growing Reform synagogue. As the only Reform synagogue in the Greater Brandon area, we provide a home for Jews, interfaith and LGBTQ families of all ages and backgrounds. As a small and diverse congregation, we value the contribution and participation of each individual member and rejoice in the fullness and diversity that exists in Jewish families today.
Shabbat is the highlight of the Jewish week, an opportunity to connect with family, friends and community. Tranquility and reflection are combined with learning, joy, spirited singing and prayer for a day that restores and renews.
Services are every Friday night at 7:30 PM. Services are warm and friendly, welcoming singles, families and children of all ages.
The beautiful voices of our adult choir, Kolot Shalom, enhance our services several times a year.
Our Friday evening services are followed by an Oneg Shabbat, providing the opportunity to enjoy the company of others along with a nosh. One of our innovations is our “Pre-neg,” a celebration of Kabbalat Shabbat, welcoming Shabbat with wine, cheese and snacks, as well as juice for the kids. All Pre-Negs start at 6:45 PM with the Kiddush and Motzi blessings, preceding our 7:30 PM services. Onegs will not follow a Pre-neg, to allow families and friends time to enjoy dinner or socialize. Shabbat Morning services are held in conjunction with the celebration of Festivals, B’nei Mitzvah congregational life cycle events as well as other special occasions. Please check our calendar for a complete schedule of services.
