Founded in December 1977, Temple Beth Shalom is a Columbus-area Reform Jewish Congregation, with about 500 member families, that offers weekly Sabbath Services, religious and Hebrew schooling and Bar/Bat Mitzvah tutoring, personalized lifecycle observances, family and adult educational programming, social, charitable, and cultural activities, conversion, pastoral counseling, and much, much more!

We are affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism. Rabbi Howard L. Apothaker, Ph.D. has served as our Rabbi since 1980. In 2008, Rabbi Benjy A. Bar-Lev joined the congregation as our Associate Rabbi and Director of Education. Cantorial soloist Gail Rose and musicians provide the music for our services, the religious and Hebrew schools, and other Temple events and activities.

Temple Beth Shalom is a warm and inclusive congregation whose members are inspired to explore and express Judaism within the broad and dynamic framework of Reform beliefs and practices. We seek to provide Jewish spiritual, educational and social opportunities which encourage personal development and social responsibility as well as promote greater knowledge of our Jewish history and culture.
