"I belong to Temple Adat Shalom because. . . 
it keeps me connected to my faith, my friends, and my community."

Founded in 1974, Temple Adat Shalom is the center for Reform Jewish life in North County Inland, San Diego. From our start as a small group of Jews seeking to create a progressive Jewish presence in the Rancho Bernardo area, our congregation has grown into a vibrant community with something for everyone. In the most essential Jewish tradition we are a House of Worship, a House of Learning, and a House of Gathering, offering our congregants many ways to engage with our Jewish faith, heritage, and people.

"I belong to Temple Adat Shalom because. . .
it is my home away from home--
the place I've celebrated happy times, and appreciated the support of friends
to make it through sad times."

Our approach to Judaism is grounded in tradition and seasoned with a modern, progressive sensibility. Worship services are joyful and full of music. Our engaging educational programs span from our Ganon Gil Early Childhood Center, to Mosad Shalom Religious School serving  grades K-12, to offerings for families and adults of all ages.

"I belong to Temple Adat Shalom because. . . 
it is inclusive and welcoming and a wonderful place
for children to grow within the Jewish community."

We welcome interfaith couples and families and those who are considering or in the process of conversion to the Jewish faith. We believe in engaging fully with our community, and offer many ways for our congregants to fulfill the mitzvah of Tikkun Olam (Healing the World).

Wherever you are in your Jewish journey, we will walk beside you and support you.

"I belong to Temple Adat Shalom because. . .
This is where we have found our Jewish family."

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our congregation, but more importantly, we invite you to come and experience the warm and welcoming community that is our home. Our doors are always open to you.

"I belong to Temple Adat Shalom because. . .
I want my children to know what it means to be Jewish 
and I want our family to be part of a community that strives to
live by the values that are most important to me."

What is Reform Judaism?

Our Faith

Reform Judaism maintains faith in the Covenant between God and Israel as expressed over the generations in the teachings of an ever-evolving Torah and tradition. Stirred by the mandate of tikkun olam, Reform Judaism seeks to be the living expression of those teachings. It welcomes all who seek Jewish connection to pursue a life of meaning as inspired by the Divine and proclaimed in the truths grasped by Jewish teachers throughout time.

In Community

In sacred attachment to the Jewish people and with connection to the State of Israel, Reform Jews, as members of a group and as individuals, in holy congregations and in diverse settings, strive to make thoughtful choices about how we put our values into action. Reform Judaism asks us to seek the holiness that is present throughout creation through reflection, critical study, and sacred acts so as to renew our living Covenant with God, the people Israel, humankind, and the earth.

With Leadership

The organizations of the Reform Movement exist for the purpose of bringing the teachings of Judaism to the world. In partnership with one another, these organizations hope to realize the many lessons contained in those teachings by nurturing individual Jews, by sustaining congregations and groups that foster authentic and innovative community, and by shaping a shared destiny for Reform Jews with fellow Jews in Israel and around the world.
