Temple Har Shalom was established in 1970 by five families eager to build a Jewish presence in the greater Watchung Hills. Who could imagine then, how our congregational family would grow. Since our founding, we have encouraged Jewish spiritual fulfillment, developed extensive educational programs for children and adults, and joined together in celebration, friendship and repair of our world.
We are a vibrant Jewish community drawing members from more than 14 different towns in Somerset, Union and Morris counties. Since our beginning, we have prided ourselves on creating a truly caring community that is dedicated to Jewish values and traditions. Our vision is to honor the past and maintain and grow a relevant congregation in the 21st century. We seek to meld the rich history of our Jewish people with modern life by offering innovative programming, technological integration, a cutting-edge educational curriculum and a wide array of engaging experiences to meet the needs of all ages.
We are a member of the Union for Reform Judaism.
