President’s Message

When we first came to Temple Beth Shalom 14 years ago, we were absolutely impressed with the warm, friendly atmosphere. Honestly, we have NEVER gone to any schul in the world like Temple Beth Shalom. If you have not had the chance to attend one of our services or activities, I invite you to come so that you can experience Jewish life as it should be. The congregants will soon become your friends. I can tell you that one of the things I was very impressed by was that people were truly interested in knowing ME, not how much money I have or what my occupation was or where I lived. I quickly felt at home, made new friends that have become “family” to me, participated, volunteered and now am privileged to be in the Office of the President!

I am happy that you are taking the time to view our website. Hopefully it will give you a glimpse into the amazing Temple Beth Shalom. You should be able to find out who we are, what we do and why it is worthwhile to become a part of us. Please accept this as your personal invitation from me to attend one of our services or activities. It would be great if you could email me ahead of time so that I can look for you and make you feel at home ( I guarantee you will like what you find and realize that this is the Jewish community you’ve been looking for.

I am looking forward to meeting you and sharing our amazing temple with you.

Until then…Shalom!

Peter Simenauer
