About Us

Who We Are

Temple Beth Shalom is a dynamic congregation of about 110 families, located in a beautiful, historic building at 50 Division Street, Hudson, Ohio. Friday night Shabbat Services are held twice each month at 7:30 p.m., normally on the second and fourth Fridays of the month, and additional services are held for Saturday mornings and holidays. See our Calendar page for the schedule of services and other activities.

The Temple offers religious education to prepare young people for Bar/Mat Mitzvah and beyond. Our program includes Religious School on Sunday mornings for pre-kindergarten through grade 9 (confirmation), well as Hebrew School on Thursday afternoons for grades 3-6.

What We Offer

Programming is planned to involve the whole Temple family. TBS has adult education events and an adult book discussion group. Social action projects are developed each year to further Jewish causes and enrich our local community.

The Temple family likes to have fun! We have social activities for adults and families. The Sisterhood is very active, hosting the Temple Hanukkah Fair and many other events, and the Brotherhood is getting started enthusiastically.

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. For more information, please call the Temple office at 330-656-1800.
