About Us

Welcome to the Beth Shalom Milano official website!

Beth Shalom was founded in 2002 to offer worshippers an alternative form of Judaism infused with meaning and relevance. Since that time, our congregation has grown rapidly and includes members from Italy, the U.S., Switzerland, South Africa, Israel and France. Beth Shalom is a part of the European Region of the World Union for Progressive Judaism, the largest Reform 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. Together, we attempt to answer the question of what it means to live a fully Jewish life. Beth Shalom is a welcoming Jewish home where you can bring your whole self and be your best self. We seek to experience the joy, the beauty and the depth of life. As a community of individuals and families, we celebrate our Jewish traditions and the important milestones of our lives. We approach our Judaism with a lightness of heart and a sense of humor. In everything we do, we challenge ourselves to do better. To us, Reform is a verb.
