Hebrew School


Model Seder 2


We are a growing community synagogue serving the diverse Jewish community in Southern Saratoga County and surrounding areas.

For more information contact Ray Franzone banginghammer@aol.com or call the synagogue office at 371-0608 (office staff is available Monday through Friday mornings.

Congregation Beth Shalom is blessed in many ways, now more than ever before in our history.
We are a vibrant and strong congregation, with excellent programs, and strong rabbinic leadership.

Rabbi Chanan Markowitz is wise, warm compassionate, and experienced.
He is an engaging speaker who easily helps us to laugh, cry and learn. He is readily available, both when we need him and to just get to know us.
His strong cantorial voice has enriched our services.

Our congregational family is just that, a family, there for us in joy and sadness and all the times in between.
We welcome new members to join us. Being a member truly means having a Jewish community.

Numerous offerings beyond our scheduled services and classes enrich our synagogue community:

A wide variety of social, cultural and social action activities are sponsored by our Sisterhood, Brotherhood, Choir, Social Action Committee, Reyut (friends in need), and COEJL (Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life). Activities vary from year to year, but some examples are this year s Sisterhood shower to benefit the Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Center of Saratoga County, and a very enjoyable talent show that was held in the Shenendehowa Little Theater. We have had a walking club and a biking club in the summer months. Sisterhood Chanukah Latke dinners, Break the Fast, and Hamentachen baking events are always popular. Brotherhood sponsors a yearly picnic that is well attended.

We are a warm, welcoming, active Jewish community. Please join us.
