We are proud to say that our membership represents a wide range of the Jewish community. With almost 200 member families, we have a healthy mix of members touching all age ranges and including people with varied backgrounds in Judaism. When you walk into Temple Beth Shalom, you will feel the warmth and welcome of our community.

Any person of the Jewish faith who is 18 years old or older may apply for membership at Temple Beth Shalom. A membership unit can be one person, if you are single, or it can include the people in your household, if you have a family. Unmarried college students through the age of 25 are considered part of their parent’s household.
