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 New Year is almost here. Our Erev Rosh Hashana Service will take place on Sunday evening, September 13th starting at 7:30pm. Temple Beth Shalom wishes all of you a happy, healthy, and sweet new year.

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.
