Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Beth Shalom Congregation was founded by a small group of families in Seattle in January 1969. The initial aim was to provide an institution which would serve the spiritual, educational, social, and cultural needs of Jews interested in retaining their traditional heritage. The congregation is affiliated with the United Synagogue, parent body of Conservative Judaism, and is an active member in the national network of Conservative Synagogues in America.
