Welcome! Shalom!

Whether you’re established in the area, just moved in, studying or visiting, Beth Shalom offers you a warm welcome.

Cambridge Beth Shalom is a community like no other – a thriving and amazingly diverse Reform community drawing members from the Cambridge area and visitors from all over the world. We hold services weekly on Shabbat morning, High Holy Days and festivals and, although no congregation can be all things to all people, at Beth Shalom we strive to accommodate the needs and wishes of our members while maintaining the sanctity of Jewish tradition.

Cambridge Reform Jewish Community was founded in October 1976 and Beth Shalom in 1981 and we recently celebrated our 35th anniversary. However we only opened our first permanent synagogue in Cambridge in 2015, and many of our community functions and all services are now held here.

Welcome. Shalom.
