Social  Activities

Temple Beth Shalom of the West Valley members gather at Passover Seder.



To be a devoted Reform Jew is to do many things. One of the most important is to work toward making the world a better place. Temple Beth Shalom of the West Valley offers many ways to make new friends, celebrate and support one another through good times and bad, and volunteer to help the Temple and the entire community.

Social Action Committee: We work together as a community to try to help the lives of at least a few people. For example, we have been supporters of the Valley View Community Food Bank in Sun City since it was founded in 2007. 

Brotherhood: Our Brotherhood was established in 1979 at Temple Beth Shalom to promote fellowship and service to the Temple. Toward that goal, the Brotherhood sponsors Temple fundraisers and social events.

Sisterhood: All women Temple members are invited to join the Sisterhood. First-year Temple members receive a complimentary membership to Sisterhood.

Chavurah: Temple Beth Shalom members with similar interests get together to share communal activities and Jewish learning.

Community Projects: From canned goods to cereal, Temple members make donations as part of the "Can Do" monthly campaign to benefit the Valley View Community Food Bank.

Caring Committee: Our Caring Committee specializes in building connections with our congregants and their immediate  family members during times of health crisis and beyond.


Book Club: The TBS Book Club meets by Zoom the third Wednesday of the month at 2 p.m. Most books are Jewish-related fiction and non-fiction, but not always. 

Grief GroupAre you experiencing grief or depression? The grief group meets monthly  (except during the summer) at the Temple for all members and non-members.
