Welcome to Temple Beth Shalom
Temple Beth Shalom is a warm and welcoming Jewish community based in Melrose, Massachusetts. We take pride in the fact that people who join our temple have told us they found a "home" at the congregation. We believe that the main purpose of a congregation is to provide a home for its members.
We work hard to create a spiritual home through the beauty of the Jewish religion, a community home through the many ways we try to connect people with each other, a fulfilling home through our many efforts over the years to support Melrose and its institutions via our social action and larger community outreach efforts.
The entire congregation and many others in the community receive and read the Temple Bulletin. Can you think of a better way to show you care? A donation of any amount remembering a loved one or congratulating family, friends or neighbors results in a timely mention in the Bulletin.
In addition, prayer book donations are $40, and include a book plate bearing your name and the name of your honoree in one of our prayer books.

Here is a wonderful video history of Temple Beth Shalom. This video was completed in April 2008 before our Capital Campaign and subsequent temple renovation. The video was put together by Rob Gati, Scott Mendelssohn, and Ellen Shore. Narration done by Tug Yourgrau.
