President's Message

I am truly honored to serve as president of Temple Beth Sholom. When Stacey and I decided it was time to join a synagogue, it was important that we found a place that we could call home. A shul where we could feel both spiritually and socially connected. A place where our children could grow up and develop a love of Jewish values, observance, and community. We found that home and so much more here at TBS.

TBS has an abundance of offerings for everyone. Led by our exceptional clergy, we are a community of lifelong learners, with a commitment to maintaining a welcoming and sacred environment for all of our congregants. From our youngest members in the Eric B. Jacobs Early Childhood Education Center to our senior members – and everyone in between, TBS is home. We come together in good times to celebrate baby namings, bar/bat mitzvahs, and aufrufs, and we support and comfort each other in times of illness and loss. TBS is family.

Attend a Shabbat morning service and participate in our unique Torah discussion or attend one of our ruach-filled family services. Sisterhood, Men’s Club, Young Members Group, B’emtza (empty-nesters “in the middle”), and Hazak (seniors) all have full schedules of exciting programs throughout the year. Get involved in a committee or attend one of our many adult education programs. You can sing in the choir, “Cook for a Friend” with Social Action, attend a lunch-and-learn program on Zoom, or just be part of our daily minyanim. Whether you are a long-time member or new to our community, I encourage you to get involved and experience all that we have to offer at TBS.

B’shalom,
Marty Chazin

Marty is an attorney at Campbell Soup Company in Camden. He and his wife, Stacey, have been members of TBS since 1998, joining soon after they moved to Cherry Hill from Philadelphia. They have two sons — Josh, who now lives and works in Washington, D.C., and Adam, who is an undergraduate at Syracuse University. Josh and Adam spent their preschool and kindergarten years at the TBS Early Childhood Education Center, became bar mitzvah at TBS, and traveled to Israel with their respective TBS Confirmation classes. Marty and Stacey are grateful for the spiritual, religious, educational, and social community that TBS has offered to their family over the past 20+ years, and have tried to give back to TBS through involvement on many committees, in volunteer roles, and through other support.
