Adonai, You abide though all things change.
I am anxious and fearful, and I turn my heart to You,
looking to You and leaning on Your strength.
It is written, “Blessed is the one whose strength is in You.”
Bless me now with faith and courage.
Help me to feel that You are with me,
steadying and sustaining me with the assurance that I am loved.
Be with me and bring me hope, that in the days to come,
my aspirations may be fulfilled for my good
and the good of those I love who depend on me.
Banish my fears with the sense that You are always present,
to uphold and sustain me, as it is written,
“Have no fear, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with the power of My righteousness” (Isaiah 41:10). Amen.

Information Updated Feb. 10, 2021

In the face of these unprecedented times, Temple Beth Shalom remains committed to our core values more than ever. Keeping the health and well-being of our entire community in mind, we suspended on-site operations effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Although our building is currently closed, our temple community remains open, warm, and welcoming! Here’s what this means for you:

  • The building is currently closed to the public.
  • Clergy and staff work remotely each day and are available by email and temple phone extensions. Click here to contact us.
  • All in-person meetings and programs are canceled. When feasible, meetings may be held virtually.
  • Note that there may be a delay in U.S. mail sent to our temple during the closure.

Our remote operations continue to evolve. We ask for your patience and support as we work through the details of how temple life will change during this health care crisis, including opportunities for prayer, learning and service.

Please check your email for future updates, and members, be sure to check our Facebook Community Forum page and this webpage for the most current information. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or email.

In hard times, the Jewish people have always persevered. We are not alone, and while we may not be together in person as a congregation for a while, technology will connect us.

Temple Beth Shalom is your spiritual home and your staff, clergy, and lay leadership are here for you in the coming days and weeks.
