Temple Shalom

Welcome!

We are an inclusive and welcoming community supporting Jewish life in the KW region. We strive to educate and inspire children, youth, and adults to participate actively in worship, Torah study, and Jewish life experience, and to put Reform Jewish religious and ethical principles into action. We seek to enrich the lives of our members, to contribute to the continuance and vitality of the Jewish people, and to help repair the world.

Religious School

At the Temple Shalom Religious School you’ll find an atmosphere of warmth, excitement and love of Jewish learning for students in Kindergarten through to B’nei Mitzvah. We foster a sense of belonging and connection to Jewish tradition, practice, and community.  Our B’nei Mitzvah students engage with Torah, read Hebrew, and are active participants in our Jewish community.

Our Community

Your Temple Shalom experience doesn’t end when you leave the sanctuary!

We have plenty of social, family, and outreach events for Temple members and non-members alike. Holiday events for kids and families, education and social events for adults, and monthly potlucks are just some of the activities you will find at Temple Shalom.
