About Us

Temple B’nai Shalom (TBS) is a vibrant, caring, and progressive Reform congregation established in 1986 in the woods of Fairfax Station to serve the needs of a growing Jewish community in Northern Virginia. Our core values as a congregation are summarized in our Mission Statement:

To care for one another and the world around us


Embodied in our mission is our dedication to creating and maintaining a sense of community and to providing a variety of Jewish spiritual, social, and educational experiences for both adults and children. We emphasize social action, outreach, helping the needy, and Torah study for adults as well as children, and tikkun olam — making the world a better place for everyone. We are proud to be affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, the governing body of the 900 Reform Jewish congregations in North America.

Our congregation welcomes individuals and families from a variety of backgrounds. Young, old, single, partnered, married, divorced, and people with special needs have found a home with us. Our synagogue is a house of worship for all people, including Jewish members and their non-Jewish spouses and partners who share a commitment to Reform Judaism. Our teenagers are an especially close group that continues to learn and teach at the Temple until they graduate from high school and then many return for services when they are home for holidays.
