Worship, Learning, Community … these are the core values within our congregation, however, if you ask a member what they value most about Temple Har Shalom, they will likely answer, “the people.” Temple Har Shalom strives to help members grow spiritually, to deepen their understanding of Jewish heritage and culture, and to strengthen their connection to the Jewish community.
We are a congregation that welcomes everyone, young and old, local and visitor, and from all walks of Jewish life. Fellowship, spiritual enlightenment and connectivity play an integral part at Temple Har Shalom.
Temple Har Shalom is a community built of over 300 families. We strive to create a strong and caring Jewish presence in Park City.
