Temple Sha’arey Shalom
Our temple raises money all year long, not only for our temple, but for the community at large. We donate to the Elizabeth soup kitchen. We work with other temples and churches to house the homeless. We also provide scholarship monies for children to go to summer camps and study abroad. To find out more about our temple, visit our page at www.shaarey.org or find us on Facebook.
