Kerem Shalom is a warm and robust community that is diverse and inclusive. You are welcome to join us for services, events, and educational programs.
At Kerem Shalom you will find a community whose members actively explore their spirituality, engage in social action, learn from talented educators, and, create strong connections with each other. Our social gatherings and celebrations allow us to connect through mutual interests and to together experience the joy of Jewish celebration. In our observance of lifecycle events, we are a place where people come together as a community of mutual sharing and support in times of both great joy and deep sorrow.
We encourage families with preschoolers to enroll in our monthly holiday preschool program and to attend Tot Shabbats providing a family centered approach to Judaism. Our religious school meets once a week, providing a meaningful path for youth as they prepare for their b’nai mitzvot. Education programs support families along the way.
We recognize that finding a Jewish home can be a long and involved search and that it is important for every individual or family to find the right “fit.” If you are in that process, please come join us at one of our services or at one of our many programs and events.
Services, which are open to all and held on most Friday evenings and Saturday mornings, aim to be spiritually and intellectually accessible pathways that are consistent with Jewish traditions and rituals. Our events and programs provide opportunities for people to explore a variety of interests, engage in a mix of activities, and learn from experts on a wide range of topics. Up-to-date information about services, programs and events are available on our website.
While anyone is welcome to attend our services, events, and programs, we hope that you choose to become an official “member” of the Kerem Shalom community. As a member, your presence and your dues will help us build and sustain our community, by helping support the staff, programs and physical building needed to provide our rich array of offerings. Our current members include residents of 37 Massachusetts cities and towns including Acton, Arlington, Bedford, Boston, Boxborough, Cambridge, Carlisle, Concord, Groton, Harvard, Leominster, Lexington, Lincoln, Littleton, Maynard, Sudbury, Waltham and Westford.
