A Reform Synagogue That Honors Jewish Tradition
Beth Shalom Synagogue (Baton Rouge, LA) is a Reform congregation and a member of the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).
We are a “family style” shul with a hamish, relaxed atmosphere. Our joy in expressing our Judaism is exponentially increased when shared with our congregational family. The essence of our shul family is truly the sum of the uniqueness and diversity of our members.
We strive to embody the meaning behind the Hebrew word for synagogue, "beit knesset," or house of meeting. We are a home away from home, as much a place for meeting and getting to know one another as for learning and prayer.
