Beth Shalom means “House of Peace".
We are a young, vibrant congregation. In many ways, our membership and growth reflect the recent trend in Cary's growth. In addition, the surrounding areas of Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Garner, Holly Springs, and Raleigh are contributing a steady stream of new members. Beth Shalom is comprised of a healthy mixture of all generations. A long and happy future is assured by the ever-growing number of children who add life and exuberance to our congregation.
Beth Shalom holds High Holy Day, Sabbath, and holiday services led by Rabbi Ariel Edery. Beth Shalom's Sisterhood is very active.
New ideas are constantly being proposed, evaluated, and implemented at Beth Shalom. A committee known as the Caring Community tends to our families in times of need. Our very involved Social Action Committee participates in community projects such as Habitat for Humanity, local food drives, and the Carying Place — an organization offering aid to families with budgetary and other problems. Beth Shalom extends its hand in friendship by visiting and dining with elderly members of the Jewish community residing in retirement homes.
Beth Shalom was formed in 1983. We are affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism, the Carolina Association of Jewish Educators, the Wake County Jewish Federation, the Jewish Community Services, the Cary Area Ministerial Association.
It is Beth Shalom's policy to welcome interfaith families and to encourage the children of these families to attend our religious and Hebrew school.
