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. 

Music Fund Donations

Over the past year, our community has had the pleasure of hosting a wide array of Jewish musical acts from the Boston area and beyond. As a part of a wider mission to enhance community gatherings and to create a sustainable model for concert series and performances, TBS is starting a music fund! 

Donate today to contribute to our ever growing musical community!

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.
