OUR MISSION

B’nai Shalom of Olney is an egalitarian, Conservative Jewish congregation, committed to enhancing life through prayer, religious education, Mitzvot, community outreach and social action. We join together to share in one another’s Simhot and sorrows. It is our goal to meet the diverse spiritual, religious and social needs of our members with the framework and traditions of Conservative Judaism. We nurture our Judaic growth through engaging educational programs for children and adults. We strive to further the causes of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We build unity with our fellow Jews and the community at large in the spirit of love and respect.
