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 December 2016 bulletin is now available on-line. Click the Bulletin icon on the right side of the screen to view the bulletin. You will also be able to view historical bulletins going as far back as 2009 if you are curious to read about our previous "happenings".
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.
Are you hosting an upcoming Oneg? Are you not sure when your family is scheduled? Have you misplaced the notes for hosting an Oneg? Wait a minute... what is Hosting an Oneg? Do you have any of these questions?
A short video created by Rob Gati honoring/celebrating the elders of our congregation at Temple Beth Shalom in Melrose, Massachusetts.
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.
