Welcome to Brooklyn’s newest Reform congregation… with a history over 100 years long.
Formed from the consolidation of Progressive Temple Beth Ahavath Sholom and Temple Beth Emeth v'Ohr Progressive Shaari Zedek, Beth Shalom v'Emeth Reform Temple is a welcoming and inclusive Jewish community for all. Just as the Yiddish word beshert means “meant to be,” this consolidation brings together two communities with rich histories and dynamic memberships.
B'ShERT is a Jewish community eager to write the next century of Brooklyn history together.
On Monday, July 9, Judge Michelle Weston of the Supreme Court of the State of New York, County of Kings, approved the consolidation of congregations Progressive Temple Beth Ahavath Sholom and Temple Beth Emeth v'Ohr Progressive Shaari Zedek under the new congregational name Beth Shalom v'Emeth Reform Temple. We are now officially the House of Peace and Truth Reform Temple, as is B'ShERT.
We still have work to do over the next few years to make the consolidation a practical and lived reality, but this is a tremendous accomplishment and a milestone in the history of Reform Judaism in Brooklyn. Thanks to all the congregants who have worked to make this a reality, and agreed to make sacrifices so that our two congregations could worship, celebrate, and practice Judaism together.
