About Temple Beth Shalom
Our synagogue is located seven miles from Boston in dynamic Melrose, MA. With a strong core of long-time members and a growing cohort of families with young children, our community of more than 85 families is well-respected in the city for the programs it provides and offers fertile ground for ongoing growth. TBS families reflect a diversity of races, genders, and sexual orientations. Our members come from and keep many levels of Jewish and non-Jewish religious observance. We are proud of the role non-Jewish members of our interfaith families play in temple life and leadership. Many of our members are actively engaged in our local community and especially in social justice work.
Founded in 1988, our religious school provides education to children from pre-K through seventh grade. While the school has had over 50 students in the past, current enrollment is around 30 students. With the recent influx of young families with children to Melrose, we expect our school to grow over the next few years.
