* Join us on Facebook ! Bethshalom, Milano *

Beth Shalom, a Jewish Reform Congregation, was founded in 2002 to provide a new and additional form of Judaism in Italy. Presently we have more than 100 members from Italy, the U.S., South Africa, Switzerland, England, Australia, Israel, Sweden, Cyprus and France. Beth Shalom is a member of the European Region of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, the largest Jewish organization in the world.

Our approach to Judaism is modern and we believe in its significance in our daily lives and the importance of the Synagogue as a symbol of our community.

At Beth  Shalom, we celebrate our rich diversity as a congregation, a community coming from many communities. And when we join together to welcome Shabbat, to study or to celebrate, we are a great intergenerational family. We are newcomers and old-timers, children and adults, individuals, couples and families, Jews by birth and by choice, non-Jewish partners and spouses. As we raise our voices in prayer and song, we know that we are one community with a common bond.
