Welcome to Beth Shalom!
Beth Shalom is a Reform Congregation in Southern Wake County. In its 30+ years, its members cut across all age groups, and, at each level, we strive to provide a warm and welcoming environment for our Jewish and interfaith families with a commitment to inclusion. As diverse as our membership is, so is the wide array of religious, educational and social activities in which to participate. Tikkun olam, repairing the world, is a hallmark of Reform Judaism, and we strive to bring peace, freedom, and justice to all people.
The congregation has continued to grow with approximately 250 families and lots of children; at last count, there were 150 in our religious school. We also have an active Men’s Club and Sisterhood along with Beth Shalom Temple Youth Groups. Beth Shalom is a congregation big enough to provide the traditional things you would expect from a synagogue but small enough such that your voice is heard and you can have a direct and immediate impact through individual participation.
This is simply a snap shot of who we are. Please take a few moments now to tour our website and learn more about us.

On Friday, October 6, we will hold a special Sukkot Shabbat Y’all during which there will be something for everyone! At 5:45, there will be a special activity for families with young children. At 6:30 p.m., we will gather for a potluck dinner (to sign up, click here). Finally, at 7:30 p.m., we will have a shortened Shabbat service with an Oneg following. Weather permitting, these events will occur downstairs and in the backyard where our Sukkah is located. Join us for some or all of our Sukkot evening celebration!
Beth Shalom will be creating a Brick Path of Life that will celebrate life events. The path will start by lining the already existing cement sidewalk, leading up to the entrance and heading to the Holocaust commemoration section of the path. Bricks can be purchased to honor graduations, births, anniversaries, and other accomplishments or to honor someone special. To participate in this fund raiser, please click here to download the order form.
Buy One, Give One Prayer Book Campaign
We are currently in need of additional prayer books for both our Friday and Saturday services. Many of you have also asked for copies of our prayer books. Our Buy One, Give One (BOGO) Prayer Book Campaign is a way to meet both needs! In addition, if you wish to donate prayer books without purchasing them, you may do so as well. For more information or to place your order, click here.
