Shalom & Welcome to Har Shalom

A Reform Jewish Community in the Heart of the Watchung Hills

According to Jewish tradition, each generation builds upon the accomplishments of those who came before them. Today, Temple Har Shalom is a dynamic center of Jewish religious, educational, cultural and social activities drawing members from more than 14 different towns within Somerset, Union and Morris Counties. Our vision is to honor our past, yet serve as a relevant and sacred Congregation in the 21st Century.

We welcome your presence as we seek to: increase your joys; enhance and expand your knowledge; broaden your engagement in helping to heal our world; and lessen the burdens of life’s challenges through a Jewish lens.
