Welcome to Temple Shalom!
TSSC is currently the only active synagogue between Portland and Augusta, serving members of the Central Maine Jewish Community in Lewiston/Auburn, and from as far away as Bridgton, Naples, and Farmington. Our beautiful temple was built in 1982, following the merger of Congregation Beth Jacob of Lewiston (founded in the 1920s) and the Lewiston Jewish Community Center (founded in the 1950s). For many years, we were affiliated with the Conservative Movement; however, since 2004 Temple Shalom has been an independent, egalitarian congregation, welcoming all Jews and all levels of Jewish observance. Our mission is to foster a strong Jewish identity and an active Jewish community.
Shabbat services are offered every Saturday morning, the preliminary service at 9:30 am and
the shacharit service at 10:00 am, followed by kiddush. All are welcome! On second
Saturdays, we offer a shorter service followed at 10:30 by an extended Torah study. On fourth
Saturdays, there is a learner's service, sometimes followed by lunch or potluck.
We also offer a Thursday morning minyan at 7:00 am, as well as holiday services, Jewish
education for children and adults, a book club, and adult education courses. Please see our
upcoming events calendar and newsletter at left, or contact us for more information.
NEW HOURS: Our office is open Monday through Friday, 9:00 am - 12:15 pm
