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.

The Temple is open to serve everyone during this time of COVID-19. Our staff is working remotely, so we ask that you reach us by phone or email instead of stopping by the Temple. We are hard at work planning JSchool, Machon our 50th Anniversary programs and more. All pertinent information will be communicated to our community via email and available on our website
