If you would be interested in attending a Sunday morning lecture in the future on the topic:


Please let the Rabbi know.


Just a quick update to let you know that Beth Shalom has received a new bronze cemetery plaque that will be placed on the gate leading into our Beth Shalom cemetery.  This plaque is important to our cemetery because there are no other visible signs stating where we are located.


Please Visit our Calendar for All the Upcoming Events

Do you have a special event coming up that you would like to share with your family, friends, and synagogue family? Why not sponsor an Oneg or Kiddush? Sponsoring a kiddush is honoring, celebrating, memorializing, and congratulating any individual/s or event. A kiddush is a wonderful way to bring people together and begin to celebrate the Sabbath too. For more information you can call the synagogue office and speak to Jackie at (518) 371-0608 or call Linda Russell at (518) 371-3641.

Message from Board of Rabbis

Mourning the Senseless Killing of George Floyd

Our Jewish Community is grief-stricken. We stand in solidarity with our black brothers and sisters in the Jewish community and beyond, as we all mourn the violent death of George Floyd. Our community rejects racism and bigotry in all its forms in our society.

Along with Civil Rights leaders, local officials, and other religious leaders, we express our respect and empathy for every human being as we are taught that each person is created B’Tzelem Elohim [in the sacred image of God]. We renew our commitment to pursue justice and to work together for meaningful and lasting systemic change.

Our tradition teaches: “Do not stand idly by while your neighbor bleeds” [Leviticus 19:16]. Therefore, we will uphold our responsibility to work alongside our neighbors to build a more equitable, caring, and just world.
