- Our Synagogue
Shalom! We are delighted that you are considering joining our synagogue! Temple Beth Sholom is the only egalitarian Conservative synagogue located in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. We are a proud affiliate of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism, climbing towards 400 families.
We have created a warm, caring, vibrant, and innovative community where individual and family lives are enriched through spiritual, educational, and intergenerational bonding. Our goal is to become your extended family and support you in all your life-cycle events and simchas. Temple Beth Sholom is our Jewish home that offers a place to worship, study, and lead Jewish lives together.
We provide a wide range of religious, educational, social, and community activities for all ages. Many of our members are snowbirds or new residents to our community. At our services, our “Rabbi with the microphone” walks through the congregation to welcome new faces and to foster new connections. When you become a member, you will be paired up with an existing member who will assist you in exploring all the Temple Beth Sholom has to offer.
In addition to full memberships, we have seasonal memberships (for those spending 1-6 months in Sarasota). We also offer young adult memberships.
Please call our office and speak to Kelly at 941-955-8121 if you have questions, to receive a membership application, or to schedule an appointment to meet Rabbi Werbow as you consider becoming part of our TBS family.
We ecourage people from all Jewish backgrounds regardless of denomination, gender, race, age, sexuality, or background. We pride ourselves in balancing the traditional and the contemporary. As the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism states, "We envision and pursue an authentic and dynamic Judaism that inspires today’s and tomorrow’s generation of Jews to seek meaning, find connection, and experience wholeness (shleymut) in a world that is complex and ever evolving."
