Today is August 22, 2017 -
Our synagogue began in early 1972 around a Mah Jongg table, where a close group of friends were discussing where to send their children to Religious School. Over the course of the next several months, many dedicated families worked together to create what is now Temple Beth Torah.
Our first Shabbat service was held in July of 1972 with High Holidays and Religious school to follow that Fall. A short 5 years later the building was built and here we are almost 45 years later as an established, respected, vibrant and successful congregation.
We have a strong religious school that offers programming for students from ages 4-14. We foster our students love of learning and provide a solid foundation for building strong and lasting Jewish identities.
We have a very active Sisterhood, Israel Action Committee, Tikkun Olam Committee, Ritual Committee, Adult education, social programming and many other activities that make Temple Beth Torah the exciting and strong community that we are. Through our varied programming and activities there is much opportunity to participate and get involved.
Temple Beth Torah is an affiliated Conservative congregation, although we are welcoming to all. Many of our members come from backgrounds of other Jewish affiliations and we are inclusive of interfaith families.
We offer Shabbat services each Friday evening and Saturday morning as well as Minyan on Sunday mornings.
Geographically, we are more than just Holliston; we also encompass the surrounding communities. As a matter of fact, our current Board of Directors is made up of people living not only in Holliston, but also in Medway, Millis, Franklin, Ashland, and Milford.
Temple Beth Torah is a wonderful community. We are fortunate to have some of the founding members remain with us today ,all these years later. It is a testament to the wonderful place that we consider our home away from home.
Please join us and you too will find it to be a very special place.
President Temple Beth Torah
