Temple Har Shalom is a warm, inclusive, vibrant and progressive Reform community that welcomes everyone through the doors to share in the warmth of our school, our services, and other programming. Led by Rabbi Randi Musnitsky and Cantor Anna Berman, as well as a robust professional staff and lay leadership, Temple Har Shalom seeks to meld the rich history of Judaism with 21st-century life by offering innovative programming, technological integration, a cutting-edge educational curriculum, and a wide array of engaging speakers, services, and learning experiences to meet the needs of all ages.
For more than 2 decades, our Mountain Top School at Temple Har Shalom has educated children ages 2-5 and offers a variety of enrichment programs and extended hours for busy families.
Our K-12 religious school has over 300 students and includes flexible scheduling (including a one day/week option), on-line registration, Hebrew instruction, an elective-based high school, the Open Door Program for children with learning challenges, and an array of engaging, multigenerational family programs.
Our full-time Youth Engagement Coordinator further strengthens our children's bonds to Judaism through service projects, travel, education and social programming.
In addition to Rabbi Musnitsky and Cantor Berman, our professional staff at the Temple is as follows: Elizabeth Bloch, Director of Congregational Learning; Laurie Ptalis, Mountain Top School Principal; Rabbi Josh Leighton, Youth Engagement Coordinator; Sherry Nemiroff, Congregation Manager.
