About this Synagogue

B’nai Shalom is a contemporary Conservative synagogue that offers a profound spiritual experience and a warm, family-like community. Members share a commitment to being caring and inclusive and connecting to Jewish values, education, and traditions in personally meaningful and diverse ways. There are egalitarian Shabbat and holiday services, followed by a Kiddush lunch, as well as daily morning and evening minyanim. Programs include an award-winning Religious School and educator-led Junior Congregation, a variety of children’s activities (toddlers through high school) and an emphasis on adult learning on multiple levels. B’nai Shalom is dedicated to volunteerism, social action, philanthropy, and Israel. It welcomes with open arms new members of all backgrounds and family structures. B’nai Shalom supports full inclusion and participation of individuals having all abilities in both religious and communal life. We are an informal, unpretentious, and caring home for the Jewish soul, heart and mind. Come join us in study, service, prayer and friendship as we grow our unique brand of traditional and egalitarian Judaism. Rabbi Robert L. Tobin, the spiritual leader of B'nai Shalom, instills our shul with a warm and inviting family spirit, a steadfast love of Israel, and a deep commitment to Jewish life and learning. He invites your contact and looks forward to welcoming you.
