From Temple Beth Israel Waltham:
We are an egalitarian, traditional, friendly, unaffiliated synagogue that has served the Jewish community in the Waltham area for 100 years. We welcome you to come by and join us for services held every Shabbat and Yom Tov as well as morning minyan on Mondays and Thursdays. We value all our members and people who have not been here before are more than welcome to come check us out. If you would like home hospitality, please contact the synagogue office.
Our membership includes about 110-120 households, from Waltham and the surrounding towns. We have an elder population who are deeply rooted in the community. They, their parents, and grandparents grew up here, or were synagogue founders. Our congregation also includes members who are new to the Waltham area, many attracted by reasonable housing, proximity to work, and strong local schools, both public and private. Students from Brandeis or Bentley also join us for services and projects, on occasion.
We are a participatory congregation, with many members who read Torah and lead services. Members with a particular interest or skill are welcome to create activities. We offer a light lunch after every Shabbat service and monthly Shabbat dinners.
We offer a growing assortment of family oriented programs and activities. Check our calendar to see what is coming up soon.
