Congregation Beth Shalom: Who Are We?

Beth Shalom is a Jewish community in Bozeman, Montana, which prays with joy and meaning, celebrates the history and traditions of Judaism, and cares and nurtures one another. We love to study and we offer many adult and child education opportunities.

We are committed to equal participation and status for men and women, those of all sexual orientations, and others who have been marginalized in Jewish life in the past. We welcome all Jews and interfaith families, at all stages of life. We strive to eliminate any conflict between Judaism and modernity, fully embracing science as consistent with our understanding of G!d and Jewish tradition.

And we embrace a global vision of the role of human beings and their individual spiritual paths in the transformation of our precious planet … read more
