Welcome to Temple Beth Shalom!

Temple Beth Shalom is a dynamic congregation of about 100 families, under the leadership of Rabbi Michael Ross. Known as the Synagogue of the Western Reserve, we are a Reform Jewish congregation, affiliated with the national organizations of that movement.
Although the Temple has grown over the years, it endeavors to maintain a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Please come join us so we can share who we are today and our vision for the future.
The Temple is located in a beautiful, historic building at 50 Division Street in Hudson. Friday night services are held twice a month at 7:30 p.m., usually on the second and fourth Fridays of the month. For a schedule of services and other activities, see our Calendar page.

Genealogy maven Robin Selinger led a study session at the retreat on Sunday, Feb 9, about how to get started with family tree research. Later that week. she helped six congregants discover the origins of their ancestors, finding family tree records and documents such as census, immigration, and marriage records, draft cards, and gravestone photos. One resulting family tree went all the way back to the 1600’s!
If you want help to get started with researching your family history, please contact Robin at email@example.com.
On Wednesday, April 1, at 7:30 pm, Robin will present another talk entitled, “Getting Started as a Search Angel: Solving Mysteries to Reunite Families,” for the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland, which meets in the Miller Board Room at Menorah Park, 27100 Cedar Road, Beachwood.
