A HOME FOR THE HEART

B'nai Shalom offers a full range of educational and social programs for children and adults of all ages.

One Bar or Bat Mitzvah is celebrated at a time so every one of our children has the full and undivided attention of family, friends and congregation on this most special of days.

Men and women count equally in all our minyanim, receive aliyot, and fill leadership positions in the Synagogue.

We have Shabbat Fun twice a month and on holidays, for our young families, and our Religious School and youngest members of the congregation join the Rabbi on the bima for the conclusion of services every week.

We also offer periodic Shabbat Services for the developmentally disabled.

On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur we offer an Alternate Family Service, a less formal and abridged service for families of all ages, as well as youth programs and services for ALL ages.
