We will continue holding services indoors in the case of inclement weather or multiple simultaneous minyans. For indoor services, we require respirator type masks (N95, KN85, FFP4, KF94), which are provided if you do not have, even for fully vaccinated individuals.  Distancing not required between fully vaccinated individuals.  3 foot distancing is required for unvaccinated individuals indoors. Space will be set aside for those who are unvaccinated or wish to socially distance.

ABOUT THE TREMONT STREET SHUL

Temple Beth Shalom, also known as the Tremont Street Shul, is a warm, friendly, traditional synagogue located near the center of Cambridge, Massachusetts. We embrace people of all ages from a wide variety of backgrounds, and we welcome newcomers to feel at home in the shul. We support three styles of Jewish worship: egalitarian, partnership, and orthodox, as well as fostering many kinds of educational, social, and cultural experiences.

We host Minyan  Tehillah, an independent prayer group, as well as the Alef-Bet Child Care (a preschool with day care hours!), and we are often engaged in collaborative Jewish programming. In addition to a robust worship and programming schedule, on the first Friday of each month (with rare exceptions; double-check the calendar), we host a semi-potluck dinner open to all! A special treat of the Tremont Street community is that our weekly Shabbat/Saturday morning services are followed by a kiddush lunch at which everyone is welcome. We look forward to seeing you, and please feel free to reach out if we can be helpful in any way. 

Services at TBS

There are 3 varieties of services, occurring both in-person and online.

Shabbat/Yom-Tov Zoom services
Egalitarian services run via Zoom at 9:30am on Shabbat or Yom Tov. We begin with "Nishmat" (p. 445 of Koren/Sacks siddur) and continue with shacharit, a reading of the weekly Torah portion, and mussaf. Details, including Zoom link are here.

Daily Zoom Services
Occurring 7:30am Monday through Friday, and 8:30am on Sunday. Details, sign-ups, and Zoom links can be found here.

In-Person Shabbat services
Actually this flavor is actually two flavors: egalitarian or orthodox. These require an advance sign-up and adherence to guidelines.

Volunteer!
We need you! Please volunteer to read Torah portions or to lead services. The more people who volunteer, the more "TBS-like" these services will be. What are you waiting for? Sign up here.

Chesed Requests/Offers During Coronavirus (open to wider community

To get through this challenging time, we all need help and support in different ways. We have set up two survey links to (1) sign up as a chesed volunteer and/or (2) request support. If you are looking for anything from help with groceries or errands, to tech or social support, we hope you will let us know. Similarly, if you are looking for ways to get involved and help community members with any of these sorts of things, please volunteer.

Virtual Events

With the physical closure of the shul (see below), we are holding online morning services every weekday, including opportunities to say kaddish. We also are hosting some other virtual events that may interest you. They are on the shul calendar and we'll list them here. To make the calendar easier to navigate, we've removed the events that are cancelled because of the closure. Fear not, they'll be back!
