What we're about

Temple Beth Sholom is a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive center for Jewish life in Salem, Oregon, and its surrounding areas.

Whether you are looking for religious, social or life-cycle events, TBS is here to meet your needs. Our membership is diverse in practice and varied in observance. Our congregation includes over 130 membership units (families, seniors, couples and singles).

TBS includes a group, “havurah” in Hebrew, called Secular Shmecular. The group has a wide range of people with different belief systems, from Atheist to observant. All are welcome and respected. They hold a drop-in social every Sunday to schmooze or discuss whatever comes to mind. The discussions can be spirited, and more often than not, great fun.

From time to time, TBS invites speakers to talk on a wide range of interesting topics.

Whether you are looking for a place to worship, learn or simply come together socially, we hope you will consider become part of our family.

We want to be YOUR Jewish home in Salem!

Secular Shmecular, where cultural Jews come to schmooze.

Panera Bread

Weekly social for the Secular Shmecular havurah. The goal is… none-what-so-ever. No agenda, hidden or otherwise. It’s just an opportunity to meet, socialize and schmooze. As Jews, we recognize that missing out on an opportunity to kibitz is as much a crime as ordering lox on Wonder Bread.

Why weekly?
It is fully expected that people will drop by as their schedule permits. By scheduling it as a weekly event, whoever has the time and desire, on a given week, can simply show up. Some weeks may only have two or three people, other weeks twelve or more. The idea is to make it as low key and low pressure as possible. This does not replace the occasional special event involving a topic for discussion and/or a speaker.

Temple Beth Sholom is a vibrant Jewish community. Whether you consider yourself a practicing Jew or a secular Jew, or somewhere in between, you can find a community here. My name is Peter. My wife and I have spent decades trying to find a Jewish community where we would feel welcome. We are among the vast majority of Jews in the U.S. who are not observant. Thanks to TBS we now have a Jewish community.

Of course, if you are a practicing Jew, TBS provides all those needs. But if all you really want is some other Jewish people to hang out with, take a look at our havurah, Secular Shmecular.

If you've felt, as we did in the past, that you're missing a "Jewish connection," we invite you to come give us a try.
