We are a warm and welcoming community in the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts where people of many backgrounds and beliefs come together to worship and explore the richness of the Jewish tradition. Ahavath Sholom was founded in 1926 and is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist Communities.
The mission of Congregation Ahavath Sholom is to support a completely participatory, egalitarian, and inclusive Reconstructionist Jewish community. While recognizing the dynamic and evolving nature of Judaism in modern life, we engage with our traditions to inspire our ethical and spiritual growth. We encourage study, prayer, and celebration, education of children, and acts of caring and social justice.
