 The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference.”
~Elie Wiesel
In the wake of the tragedy that occurred at the Tree of Life Congregation, Jewish communities nationwide are standing in solidarity with our friends in Pittsburgh. Please join us in participating in the 
Go Fund Me Campaign for this sacred community.
Your contribution will go directly to the Tree of Life congregation to help them rebuild and to support the victims and their families.


We are so deeply appreciative of the outpouring of support we had at our Interfaith Vigil on Tuesday evening, October 30. Thank you to the many congregants, community members, clergy, leaders of faith, police officers, fire fighters and elected officials who walked into our Sanctuary determined to stand together and love and strengthen one another.  If you were not able to attend, or simply want to hear the inspiring words and beautiful music from the event, here is the link to the streamed video.


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.
