Temple Avodah is a loving place of worship where Reform Judaism is presented in a family oriented, welcoming and modern approach. Our Congregants call it their second home. For those seeking a meaningful Jewish experience at a South Shore Reform Temple, Temple Avodah is an outstanding choice.
Our Temple Avodah is a beit t’fillah (house of worship), beit midrash (house of study), and beit knesset (house of assembly). We are an inclusive congregation, welcoming traditional and non-traditional families, couples and individuals with varied lifestyles. However you define your family, we welcome you to ours. We value the joy of prayer, study and service. Temple Avodah is a place to connect with God, celebrate life cycle events, receive comfort in times of need, and develop lasting friendships and memories.
We recognize Jewish education is a lifelong process that begins with our religious school and continues through our adult education programs. Our vibrant youth programs support and prepare our children to live meaningful Jewish lives. We embrace our obligation as Jews to improve ourselves and the world around us. We are dedicated to preserving Reform Jewish values and traditions for future generations.
