Welcome to Kerem Shalom – Vineyard of Peace


Kerem Shalom is a diverse and welcoming, unaffiliated Jewish community located in historic Concord, Massachusetts. With many interfaith families, Kerem Shalom is a vibrant, supportive home for Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and ohavey Yisrael – those who are not Jewish, but love the Jewish people and support the Jewish choices of their families. We are strengthened by our shared heritage and the diversity of backgrounds, family composition, sexual orientation, age, ethnicity, race and economic status. All are welcome! Contact us.
