From Our President:

  On March 10th, I penned a letter to the congregation to introduce the idea of selling a portion of our property to significantly increase the size of our endowment and provide a stream of revenue for Temple Shalom for years to come. In the weeks since that letter was sent, I have received a number of thoughtful questions. It is my intent that by the time we hold the Annual Meeting on May 7th to vote on the sale of the land, most, if not all, of your questions will have been adequately addressed. To accomplish this task, we will host Town Hall meetings on April 23rd  from 11:00am-12:00pm and April 30th from 11:30am – 12:30pm. Room location to be advised. We will also make speakers available to meet with the auxiliaries or any other group that would be interested in having a dialogue on the subject.

Help Us Welcome Your Friends!

Our mission is to inspire in you a relationship with God, Torah, Israel and the Jewish people through worship, study, gathering and community service. Do you know someone we should invite to the temple, someone who is new to Dallas, or is not connected to a congregation?
Please contact Executive Director Steve Lewis at slewis@templeshalomdallas.org so we can show them that Temple Shalom is their place!
