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 at which everyone is welcome.

Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are coming up soon! This year we are excited to offer three services on Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur.

  • Egalitarian Services will be held in the main sanctuary and 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 various community members. This service uses the Birnbaum Machzor.
  • Kol Shofar will be  held in the vestry, and led by Rabbi Will Friedman. This service is fully egalitarian and uses the Birnbaum Machzor plus additional materials. Note: Kol Shofar will meet on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and Kol Nidrei, Mincha, and Neilah on Yom Kippur.
