Temple Ohabei Shalom ("Lovers of Peace") has been at the center of New England Judaism since our founding as the first synagogue in Massachusetts in 1842. One of America's grand synagogues, we are affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism. A truly diverse mosaic, our members are comprised of Jews by birth and by choice including interfaith families, and many ethnicities and nationalities, without regard to sexual preference. We worship as one on Beacon Street sharing spiritual Shabbat services infused with rich music, comforting daily worship and a myriad of adult learning opportunities to challenge your mind. Special guest speakers sprinkle Friday night services. From meditation gatherings to social action Mitzvah Days, we are a community committed to learning and growing both spiritually and in deed.
