Rabbi's Inspiration

Welcome to Beth Shalom!

Beth Shalom is a Reform Congregation in Southern Wake County. In its 30th year, its members cut across all age groups, and, at each level, we strive to provide a warm and welcoming environment for our Jewish and interfaith families with a commitment to inclusion.  As diverse as our membership is, so is the wide array of religious, educational and social activities in which to participate.  Tikkun olam, repairing the world, is a hallmark of Reform Judaism, and we strive to bring peace, freedom, and justice to all people.

The congregation has continued to grow with approximately 230 families and lots of children; at last count, there were 160 in our religious school and growing.  We also have an active Men’s Club and Sisterhood along with Beth Shalom Temple Youth Groups.  Beth Shalom is a congregation big enough to provide the traditional things you would expect from a synagogue but small enough such that your voice is heard and you can have a direct and immediate impact through individual participation.

This is simply a snap shot of who we are.  Please take a few moments now to tour our website and learn more about us.

At Beth Shalom, we strive to make everyone feel welcome, regardless of background, orientation, finances or other affiliation.
