Welcome to Our Temple

According to Jewish tradition, each generation builds upon the accomplishments of those who came before them. Today, Temple Har Shalom is a dynamic center of Jewish religious, educational, cultural and social activities drawing members from more than 14 different towns within Somerset, Union and Morris Counties. Our vision is to honor our past, yet serve as a relevant and sacred Congregation in the 21st Century. We welcome your presence as we seek to: increase your joys; enhance and expand your knowledge; broaden your engagement in helping to heal our world; and lessen the burdens of life’s challenges through a Jewish lens.

With gratitude and appreciation for having endured this most challenging year of pandemic, we are now working toward fully reopening and welcoming you back into the building for in-person events. As Governor Murphy continues to lift restrictions and expand public gatherings, we too are making all the necessary preparations to promote health and safety while encouraging your physical presence.

Please continue to regularly check our website and congregational emails for the most up to date information.

Should you have questions or concerns feel free to reach out to either Rabbi Musnitsky or Josh Greenbaum
