Har Shalom...Living Our Jewish Life Together

Now more than ever the world must come together.

Peace, unity and love of humanity begins within each of us.
We must come together. Racism, Anti-Semitism and Baseless hatred must end.
The leadership of Har-Shalom is doing everything we can to stay in touch. 
We provide online continuity for services, Torah study, Sunday school and tutoring. Together we stand.
