     There are an infinite number of ways to participate in synagogue life. Members of Temple Beth Sholom plan our programs and make activities happen with the support of our fantastic staff. Our children and teenagers discover a wide variety of meaningful and fun activities though our youth groups, while our adult congregants enjoy camaraderie in the Sisterhood or Men’s Club or general TBS events. In addition, many of our members volunteer their valuable time for worthy causes with energy and enthusiasm. Temple Beth Sholom depends on the many talents of our congregants and we welcome your involvement. We welcome new faces and encourage you to explore our programs- there is truly something for everyone!
