Temple Beth Shalom is a warm and welcoming Jewish community based in Melrose, Massachusetts. TBS is a small, Reform congregation with a part-time calendar of services, a part-time rabbi, a part-time cantorial soloist, and a full time commitment to creating an environment in which the Jews of Melrose and the area north of Boston can come together to worship, learn, and socialize. We take pride in the fact that people who join our temple have told us they found a “home” at the congregation. We believe that the main purpose of a congregation is to provide a home for its members. We work hard to create a spiritual home through the beauty of the Jewish religion, a community home through the many ways we try to connect people with each other, a fulfilling home through our many efforts over the years to support Melrose and its institutions via our social action and larger community outreach efforts.
