One of our goals is to help everyone feel comfortable at the Temple. We hope you will find a spiritual connection with us. We recognize the need to reach out to our members who may need special support and services in regard to intermarriage, extended families of intermarriage, Jews-by-Choice and children of interfaith marriages. We also hope to educate and sensitize others to complex outreach issues.

Reading material on outreach topics is available in our library and through links found on this page. Our rabbi is available to discuss conversion and interfaith family issues. Programs, such as our Outreach Seder, provide an opportunity to learn more about Judaism.

Introduction to Judaism classes are offered periodically to teach beginners the basics of Jewish thought and practice.

Safe Space Training

As a welcoming congregation, Achduth Vesholom's board of trustees, staff, and congregants were invited to attend a one-hour Safe Space seminar to guide attendees through LGBTQ terminology, recent events, and developing affirming ally skills. The program was led by Q Consulting. We appreciate the generosity of the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation for enabling us to offer the program.
