Welcome to Temple Beth Shalom, Puerto Rico

salon 2

Temple Beth Shalom (TBS), the Reform Jewish Congregation of Puerto Rico, was founded in 1967 by a group of families seeking the warmth and intimacy of a small congregation.  Contributing to this ambiance are our off-island members, non-jewish associate visitors, visiting rabbis, and cantors.

We offer a generous range of programs that appeal to the wide range of our members’ demographics and backgrounds. We observe regular Shabbat and Jewish Holiday services, as well as host adult education sessions and film screenings. Life-cycle events such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, confirmations, conversions, and baby naming ceremonies also form an integral component of ourcommunity.

A Prayer for Peace urjadmin May 11, 2021

As Reform Jews, we stand strongly together with our brothers and sisters in Israel. Over the past 48 hours, Hamas has launched a massive barrage of rocket fire on southern and central Israel. At last report, six Israeli civilians have been killed and hundreds of thousands more - from Tel Aviv to Beersheba –are confined to bomb shelters. Innocent civilians in Gaza have fallen victim to this latest round of violence as well. Furthermore, the rapid escalation of violence within Israel's own borders between Jewish and Palestinian citizens of Israel is a new, and deeply troubling, development. We pray that calm will be restored soon.
