Temple Beth Shalom, also known as the Tremont Street Shul, is a warm, friendly, traditional Jewish synagogue located near the center of Cambridge, Massachusetts. We embrace a wide variety of ages, backgrounds, and styles of worship. On Shabbat evening and morning we have two styles of services. Shabbat morning services are followed by a sit down Kiddush lunch to which everyone is welcome.
Open House Weekend
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are coming up soon! This year we are excited to offer three services on Rosh Hashanah and two services on Yom Kippur.
- Egalitarian Services in the main sanctuary will be led by Rabbi Robbie Harris, Associate Professor of Bible and Ancient Semitic Languages at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, and Cantor David Sandberg. This service is fully egalitarian and uses the Harlow Machzor.
- Orthodox Services will be held at MIT and led by Rabbi Gavriel Goldfeder, senior Jewish educator at MIT, as well as various community members. This service uses the Birnbaum Machzor.
- Kol Shofar, held in the vestry, is a new service introduced last year and led by Rabbi Will Friedman. It is fully egalitarian and features full traditional liturgy from the Birnbaum Machzor plus additional materials. Note: Kol Shofar will only be on Rosh Hashanah.
