Beth Sholom is a place that strives to feel like a home to its members.  We do our best to live up to the name of our congregation – Beth Sholom – which means “House of Peace.”  Whether it is the education and youth activities we offer for our children, or the social, religious, musical, and educational opportunities we offer for adults, we strive to help our members feel a sense of belonging to, and ownership in, our Jewish community.

Beth Sholom Congregation is a diverse community whose members are at different points on their Jewish journeys. Some come from traditional Jewish homes; others have little or no Jewish education or background. Some feel passionate about social justice and activism; others wish to grow in their Jewish learning. We take seriously the Torah’s message that we are all created in the image of the Divine. Wherever you are in your journey, the vast array of activities open to you at Beth Sholom are meant to invite you to share your particular gifts and talents with the community as a whole. We recognize that our growth and well-being as a congregation depends upon the growth and well-being of our members. Whether you are new to the area or have been here for many years, Beth Sholom Congregation is committed to enriching your Jewish life.

We hope you consider membership in our congregation and we look forward to meeting you. Please contact Andrea Sachs Otto call at 215-887-1342 ext. 222, or be in touch via e-mail at
