Congregation Ahavath Sholom is a warm and welcoming community, in which people of many backgrounds can come together to worship and explore the richness of the Jewish tradition.

Founded in 1926, Ahavath Sholom is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement and is committed to maintaining the traditional practices and values of Judaism and Jewish life in the context of modernity. Members of Ahavath Sholom are not mere observers but active participants in all aspects of synagogue community life. Guided by our Spiritual Leader, Barbara Cohen, we provide opportunities for our members to grow in knowledge in order to make informed decisions about their personal and religious lives. All are encouraged to choose a level of participation that is comfortable for them.

Weekly Friday night and Saturday morning worship, festival, and High Holy Day services are participatory through congregant involvement in liturgy, Torah, music and discussion. Our prayer book series, Kol Haneshamah, a publication of the Reconstructionist Press, makes worshiping in a meaningful way accessible to all who join us for services.

We invite you to contact us for more information and hope you will visit us soon.
