About Us

Congregation Sha'aray Shalom now counts more than 285 families as members, hosts a vibrant and inclusive religious school and one of the area's most respected early learning centers. We are proud of how each member brings his or her own story to our diverse community—such as those who have a multi-generational history at our congregation and those new to the area or Congregation Sha'aray Shalom, of all ages and backgrounds who are seeking a Jewish community – a place to call home.

Welcome to Congregation Sha’aray Shalom

Congregation Sha’aray Shalom is a Jewish synagogue that serves as the lighthouse for Reform Judaism on Boston’s South Shore.

Our community consists of 282 families living in thirty towns along the south coast of Massachusetts Bay — from Boston to Plymouth. Our congregation’s home is on historic and beautiful Main Street in Hingham.

We have a tradition of an “open door” which welcomes every family member — Jews by birth, Jews by choice, and non-Jewish family members — and strives to integrate them into our community. Our strength draws on our commitment to honor and respect the diversity of our backgrounds.

We are led by a dynamic clergy team of Rabbi Shira Joseph and Cantor Steven Weiss, offering weekly Shabbat services as well as a full calendar of festival celebrations, a full-program religious school with nearly 200 students, a JCC Early Learning Center, and active adult learning and social programs.

We are affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism (URJ).


Our educational programs are first-class, with an early learning center onsite, one of the finest fully inclusive religious schools in our city, and a robust adult education program. Our goal is to provide for a lifetime of Jewish learning. We also host a sizable library and media center, wherein our members may check out materials at no charge.

Now, as always,  Congregation Sha'aray Shalom is your home.
