Welcome!

Temple Shalom Building

Temple Shalom offers a Reform Jewish community with opportunities for worship, spiritual growth, lifelong learning, and social interaction. We are a diverse community, rooted in tradition, yet moving towards the future. As such, we welcome young and old members of Acadiana who practice Judaism, seek to explore Judaism, and/or are interfaith families seeking to honor and support the Jewish elements of their family identity. We wish to inspire individuals to strengthen their identities as part of Am Yisrael (the Jewish People) and to participate actively in our Jewish community.
