Ramat Shalom is one of the oldest synagogues in Broward County. The congregation was founded in 1976 as a small, Jewish discussion group that met in members’ homes. The group quickly grew into a synagogue with many members, a rabbi, a building, and an organized school. Despite its increase in size, the congregation has never lost the small, intimate feeling that characterized Ramat Shalom from the outset. We pride ourselves on being a real community of Jews who care for each other, celebrate with each other, and grow with each other.
For many years, Ramat Shalom was affiliated with the Reconstructionist Movement, the younger sister of the Conservative Movement. Today, instead of affiliating with a specific movement, Ramat Shalom embraces the tradition of the Conservative Movement, the emphasis on learning and study of the Reconstructionist Movement and the creativity of the Reform Movement. Our Rabbi was trained in both the Conservative and Reconstructionist Movements and our Cantorial Soloist has a great deal of experience working in the Reform Movement. The two of them create a spiritual home that is uniquely Ramat Shalom. Please, come and experience us! We invite you to make Ramat Shalom your Jewish home.
