Our Featured Member synagogue for December 2009 is Congregation Sha'aray Shalom of Hingham. We are pleased to recognize the synagogue in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

For 50 years Congregation Sha'aray Shalom has been a diverse and welcoming Jewish community on Boston's South Shore. Our congregation's home is on historic and beautiful Main Street in Hingham. A member of the Union for Reform Judaism, we have approximately 275 families from more than 20 towns ranging from Boston to Plymouth, with primary concentrations in Hingham, Cohasset, Scituate, Marshfield, Hull and Hanover. We are led by a dynamic clergy team of Rabbi Shira Joseph and Cantor Steven Weiss and offer weekly Shabbat services as well as a full calendar of festival celebrations, a full program religious school with nearly 200 students and varied adult learning as well as social programs

Ours has always been a tradition of an "open door". We strive to make sure that everyone- Jews by choice or by birth as well as their non-Jewish family members - feels at home. Our strength draws on a commitment to build a community that honors and respects the diversity of our own backgrounds. What matters to us is that you want to be a part of our congregational community. Congregation Sha'aray Shalom offers a variety of Shabbat experiences to give voice to the varied sounds of prayer in our community. Experience the spirituality of Shabbat with family and friends, while instilling or reinforcing an appreciation of Judaism. Shabbat affords us an opportunity for worship, for study, for prayer, and reflection on what is most precious in our lives. At Congregation Sha'aray Shalom, we offer innovative Shabbat Services to appeal to our Congregants of all ages. Whether you enjoy observing Shabbat on a Friday night with your Congregational family or a varied Shabbat morning service filled with B'nai Mitzvah, torah study, student led services and so much more, we know that everyone will be able to find a worship experience that touches your soul. You are invited to the Shabbat experience that speaks to you. These services are open to all. If you would like to learn more about our Sha'aray Shalom and are interested in becoming part of this synagogue-community, call us at 781.749.8103 or visit us at www.shaaray.org.
