President's Message


Welcome to Congregation Beth Shalom!  I look forward to meeting you, come for a tour, a Shabbat service,  a Family Dinner or any Religious School Sunday. 

My husband Brian and I have been members of CBS for over 25 years. Both our boys went through religious school, Bar Mitzvah and Confirmation here. We met our group of best friends here. Today we are as committed to CBS as we were when our sons were growing up. 

Congregation Beth Shalom’s logo is “Where Everyone is Family”. For 25 years I have felt exactly that. Four years ago my husband had heart surgery and it was our Temple friends who rallied around us to make sure we had the help we needed and the love and prayers we needed to get through such a difficult time.

When you walk through the doors of CBS, someone will always say hi, hello, welcome. We are small, and we know when someone is new. We welcome everyone and want everyone to feel comfortable the first time as well as the 100th time they visit CBS. 

We have programs for everyone, great religious education for children from preschool through high school, plus incredible youth group experiences that are lots of fun. We also offer adult education and senior programming. 

Our services include something for everyone. On the first Friday of the month we have 6:00 pm services, including an incredible family service with a delicious dinner; we have Shabbat With a Beat featuring our adult and/or student band; twice a month we offer a traditional 7:30 pm service, with one of those services featuring our choir. 

Other things Congregation Beth Shalom are known for are: 

  • Our fabulous yearly Jewish Food Faire
  • Community Passover Seder Potluck
  • Hanukkah Latke dinner
  • Many musical events during the year
  • Yearly Purim Carnival and Purimspeil
  • Plus many, many more activities for the whole family.

Please come join us for worship, learning, eating, and fun, whatever you are looking for in a Reform Synagogue. We look forward to meeting you.

Jana Uslan, President CBS
