Welcome to Congregation

Sha’aray Shalom

Congregation Sha’aray Shalom is a Jewish synagogue that serves as the lighthouse for Reform Judaism on Boston’s South Shore.

Our community consists of 282 families living in thirty towns along the south coast of Massachusetts Bay — from Boston to Plymouth. Our congregation’s home is on historic and beautiful Main Street in Hingham.

We have a tradition of an “open door” which welcomes every family member — Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and non-Jewish family members — and strives to integrate them into our community. Our strength draws on our commitment to honor and respect the diversity of our backgrounds.

We are led by a dynamic clergy team of Rabbi Shira Joseph and Cantor Steven Weiss, offering weekly Shabbat services as well as a full calendar of festival celebrations, a full-program religious school with nearly 200 students, a JCC Early Learning Center, and active adult learning and social programs.

We are affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism (URJ).Rainbow starofdavid

OUR MISSION

Congregation Sha’aray Shalom is a Reform Jewish community on the South Shore of Boston that provides Beit T’Fillah (worship),Beit Midrash (study), and Beit Knesset (assembly), for the celebration and preservation of our Jewish heritage and our founders’ vision.

We offer traditional and innovative forms of worship, both communal and personally meaningful, to draw us spiritually closer to God, Torah, and each other, Am Yisrael (the Jewish people).

We promote lifelong learning and spiritual enrichment for all through abundant and varied opportunities for Jewish study.

Our diversity is our strength.  We welcome congregants of all backgrounds and attributes.  We encourage family members from other faith traditions to join our community and participate on a level that is consistent with Jewish values and comfortable for them.

We participate in Tikkun Olam (repairing our world) by responding to the varied needs of our own Jewish community, to K’lal Yisrael(the world-wide Jewish community), to Eretz Yisrael (the State of Israel), and to our greater civic community.
