Membership

Welcome to our Synagogue

Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills is a thriving, independent, diverse, egalitarian Jewish community serving the towns of the South Shore and adjacent Boston neighborhoods. We have recently experienced a surge in membership since breaking ground for our new building in Milton. However, we remain a close-knit, friendly community, where we enjoy celebrating Simchas together, and provide support to each other during difficult times.

Our members come from a wide geographic area including Milton, Quincy, Randolph, Weymouth, Hingham, Braintree, Dorchester, Mattapan and Hyde Park. Members of our congregation come from a diverse array of Jewish backgrounds. We welcome all who are interested in joining our Jewish community: Singles and couples of all ages, young and ‘not so young’ families, members of the GLBT community, Interfaith couples and Jews by choice.

We welcome your interest in our synagogue, and in joining our community. Please feel free to visit us for Erev Shabbat or Shabbat services, or for any of our other activities.

If you would like information about our upcoming services or events, or have specific questions not answered on our website, please contact our membership office:

Jacob Matlin-Heiger

“The congregation is kind, helpful and uplifting in that they give hope to maintaining a thriving Jewish community.  The Hebrew School has extraordinary teachers and a wonderful director, and I love learning all about Judaica.  The Rabbi is supportive, respectful and resourceful.  That’s why I like being part of Congregation Beth Shalom of the Blue Hills.” ~Jacob Matlin-Heiger

Deborah Ala and Family

I joined Temple Shalom (now CBSBH) after leaving a synagogue where I loved the services and programming but really struggled to meet people.  From day one at then-Temple Shalom, people were friendly to me and I always had people to talk to.  It was so welcoming!As someone who is married to a non-Jew, and whose husband is black, it was reassuring to me to find a community where many families have a non-Jewish parent, and members are from many ethnic backgrounds in addition to Ashkenazi Judaism.  At the same time, we are all committed to having Jewish households and raising Jewish children.” ~Deborah Ala
