President's Message

I am truly honored to serve as president of Temple Beth Sholom. Mark and I were raised in Cherry Hill and appreciated how wonderful the community is to raise a family. When it was time to join a synagogue, we wanted a shul to support our values, allow us to feel spiritually connected, and enable us to grow. Once we walked through the doors, it was clear that our children would learn, thrive, and develop a love of Jewish values at Temple Beth Sholom. We found our home and so much more here at TBS.

TBS has something for everyone. Led by our exceptional clergy, we are a community of lifelong learners, with a commitment to maintaining a safe, 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 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,
Alison Shapiro
