Prospective Members

Welcome to Beth Haverim Shir Shalom! We are a Reform congregation serving Bergen (N.J.) and Rockland (N.Y.) counties, and we are located in Northwest Bergen County. We are a community that loves to learn, sing, worship, and make a difference together, and we look forward to meeting you!

We care about our world, and we advocate for peace, human rights, and social justice. We look for creative ways to make a difference, and we believe you always receive more than you give.

We believe that learning is a lifelong process. Our adult education programs feature innovative classes on topics coordinated around an annual theme. Our religious school students meet weekly to learn Hebrew and Jewish history, tradition and culture, and they celebrate Jewish holidays and help repair the world through social action programs. And Family School is a unique option for 3rd through 6th graders, in which parents and children learn together on Sunday mornings.

Join us in study, in song, in worship, and help us continue to be a congregation that can be a force for change in the world.


We are thrilled to welcome everyone to be a part of our BHSS family, and believe that your finances should never be a barrier to membership. We will work with you to make your membership possible and allow you to enjoy all that we have to offer. Please write to the office at [email protected] or call us at 201-512-1983.
