Become a Part of a Kehillah (Community)

Walk into Temple Beth Sholom, and you will instantly feel welcome. Our community prides itself on being diverse and meeting people where they are. Being part of our kehillah, we will celebrate with and support you during every stage of life. You can also get involved by joining a class such as yoga, a club such as Men's Club, volunteer, or join a committee such as Social Action. There are also many more opportunities. The Temple is a place that you can call home. 


Never Stop Learning

With the myriad of programs and events we offer, there truly is something for everyone. Whether you are interested in the Torah, Israel, Hebrew, contemporary Jewish issues, history, or anything in between, we probably have it. We are dedicated to continuing education and learning together.


Be Inspired

Our Rabbi, Michael Werbow, is sure to spark inspiration. Our services are uplifting and steeped in tradition yet are also applicable to our everyday lives. 


Participate in Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam or "repairing the world" (i.e. social action) has always been important in the Jewish faith. TBS continually works with the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center through donation drives. We work with All Faiths Food Bank as well and deliver casseroles to the Salvation Army. TBS supports Family Promise as well in providing assistance to homeless families. Reach out to our Social Action Committee for more ways to get involved.


Connect with the Greater Jewish Community

We are proud partners of The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism as well as The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee. Additionally, we are part of "Dalet" which is a consortium of several synagogues of all denominations in the area. We collaborate with each of these groups to achieve a tight-knit Jewish community. 


Explore Your Jewish Identity

Temple Beth Sholom is a safe place to explore your identity. Rabbi Werbow's door is always open to discuss Jewish thought or life in general. Our mix of services, programs, and events aid in finding what is important to you.
