About Us

Temple Har Shalom was established in 2014 to unite the Jewish population in this mountain village by appealing to a diverse community. Temple Har Shalom is a vibrant, engaging,  and welcoming congregation for everyone from the youth to the senior, the observant to the unaffiliated, secular to the cynics, activists and the passive, and to those seeking to explore and renew their connection to Judaism.

Our community is known for its diversity and we will work towards igniting sparks of life and creating a sense of belonging, community and a life of purpose here without any judgment.

Read & Study with Rabbi Malka

Rabbi Malka’s Book study will resume our Saturday afternoon Shabbat studies on August 3rd at 4:00 pm. when we will begin reading and discussing

Einstein and the Rabbi, Searching for the Soul by Rabbi Naomi Levy

Here’s what Rabbi Malka said about her plan for studying this book: “I see us reading individually a chapter each week and then discussing it in our group. That it touches on the borders of science, soul, history, and philosophy makes it what I believe is the right book in our long and fruitful learning together.”

Beginning August 3 the group will be meeting the first four Saturdays of each month from 4:00-5:00 on Zoom. If you are looking for connection with your Jewish heritage along with other like minded people, this is the place to be. It is educational, inspiring, touching, and sometimes funny. Rabbi Malka imparts her own knowledge and wisdom to whatever we are studying.

Rabbi Malka’s Book Study is now being sponsored by members of the study group and Temple Har Shalom.
