Mitzvot in Medford: Temple Shalom

By Paul Rowe

Each spring just before the holiday of Purim begins, the congregation of Temple Shalom gathers to participate in a cherished tradition known as mishloach manot, the communal giving of gifts of food for friends and neighbors. This selflessness celebrated by a diverse population is an important ideal within Medford's rich cultural traditions. Temple Shalom brings people together, no matter what they seem to lack in common.

"Temple Shalom is a diverse community that includes seniors, young families, empty-nesters, and single adults," says President Steve Gold. "We gather for ritual and social activities, including regular religious services for children and adults, family programs such as story-time and sing-alongs, adult education classes, a monthly women's discussion group, chess games, and community dinners."
