Adath Shalom is the Jewish place to be in Morris County! With vibrant programming in social justice and a commitment to lifelong learning, this synagogue is your Jewish home away from home. Adath Shalom exists to nurture the Jewish identity of all who enter our doors by making Judaism continually and increasingly relevant in our lives. An egalitarian and inclusive community affiliated with the Conservative movement, we are dedicated to Torah, tradition and each other. We celebrate Judaism in a creative, warm and life-affirming manner, and welcome the diverse views and participation of members of all abilities in the evolution of our spiritual and community soul. Our Caring Chesed volunteers are always there for support in times of need. As the first synagogue in the nation to receive the GreenFaith Energy Shield (in 2013) for our conservation efforts and the host of the ABLE-Awarded monthly Open Door Minyan for adults with developmental disabilities, we put our mission into action.
With a full range of programs for all ages, there is truly something for everyone. Preschool activities include monthly Pajama Neshama Friday evening Shabbat experiences, weekly Shabbat Shapers on Friday mornings with the dynamic Rabbi Rudin, the only NJ location for Music Together Sing Shalom (a joint project of Music Together and the Jewish Education Project), and more to come. The Religious School offers engaging, interactive, personalized Jewish learning for Kindergarten through 7th Grades. Teens can participate in A STEP Forward for continuing education on current topics and as madrichim in the Religious School. With youth groups for students in grades 3 through 12, there are abundant opportunities to socialize with young Jews across New Jersey. Sisterhood and Men’s Club provide exciting programs and activities for adults. Lifelong Learning for adults is ongoing and constant, covering a vast range of topics. Classes can be single-session or a whole semester or more, held on Sundays, weekdays, and weekday evenings. Chazak meets monthly for luncheons with speakers for adults 55 and older. If it’s not being offered, all you have to do is ask!
