Shabbat Zoom services continue with Shabbat Shuvah

Friends, nestled comfortably between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, we will be having Saturday morning services (Egal) via Zoom at 9:30am Saturday, beginning with Nishmat.

Thanks to everyone who filled out our survey for Shabbat morning Zoom services. If you haven't, don't despair, you still can.

Additional details, including siddur page numbers, resources, and the Zoom link are here.

It's Almost Shabbat L'Chaim!

Join shul friends new and old, from near and far, every Friday at 5:30pm for a l'chaim as we wind down from our week and head into Shabbat! Click here to say hello.

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!

Mourning George Floyd, Reflecting on the Weight of This Moment

To read our full statement supporting inclusion of people of color in our community and on the emotional state of anti-racism protests we see around the world in the wake of George Floyd's death, please click here.


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.
