Temple Shalom - The New Jewish Congregation


About nine years ago, The New Jewish Congregation was formed, evolving from a Jewish social club in The Villages. In 2005, groundbreaking was held for the construction of a new temple, and regular Shabbat services were first held in 2007.

The building is very attractive and I've heard it is quite beautiful inside. I'm hoping to photograph the interior in the near future.

The congregation's website is here.

L'architecture est très réussie, les lignes sont pures, le bleu et blanc s'accordent.

I like this temple for its simple and beautiful lines, and they organize dances, night golf and, since October, even a Jewish film festival!

I especially like the clouds and sky reflected in the small windows. The incised arches are nice, with the vertical cut-outs above. I prefer a not-so-modern look. I do like your angle, though.

Beautiful building indeed, I loved the arcs and its architecture.Also the clean white atmosphere brings more feelings to be in a peaceful place!

Since this a retirement community, does that mean that there are very few bar/bat mitzvahs? The temples here seem to always be double booked.

@ Antjas - I'd think that you're right...although I seem to recall they have some adult bar/bat mitzvahs...

The Villages, however, is surrounded by other non-retirement communities, and I'm sure people from those communities are part of this temple, too.
