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.
Our first Erev Shabbat Service of the fall season will take place on Friday evening, September 5th starting at 7:30pm. We hope all had wonderful summer holidays and welcome all to join us.
The first session for the Young Childrens Program is Sunday, September 14th from 4:00pm - 5:30pm. The theme for this session is Rosh Hashanah Craft Day. Join other young families for 90 minutes of Jewish fun and learning!

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.
