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.
