Welcome to Glacier Jewish Community/B'nai Shalom

If your journey brings you to Northwest Montana, the Glacier Jewish Community/ B'nai Shalom, is here for you!

Glacier Jewish Community/B'nai Shalom is a kehillah kedoshah, a sacred community, that promotes Jewish life and unifies the Jewish community of northwest Montana. Our community gathers to celebrate Jewish life and Jewish holidays, to pray and to sing, to study and grow as learning Jews and to take care of those around us who are in need.

We are an independent, synagogue-without-walls.

We gather in people's homes and in restaurants, hotels, pubs and other public gathering places throughout the Flathead Valley. Without a building, our fundraising needs are focused entirely on our activities and outreach.

Glacier Jewish Community/B’nai Shalom is a diverse community in many ways. We live throughout the Flathead Valley and northwest Montana. We come from various religious traditions--Orthodox, Reform, Conservative, Renewal, Jews-by-Choice and fellow travelers from other traditions. We live here year-round and send our children to the local schools; and we live here part-time and enjoy the gifts of Montana living as much as we can.

What unites the Jewish community of Northwest Montana is our desire to maintain a connection to our Jewish roots and participate in a vibrant Jewish community. We want to be a part of a Jewish community that is welcoming and egalitarian, joyful and inspiring. We want to laugh together, break bread together and learn more about our shared tradition of Judaism.

Whether you are just visiting, thinking of relocating, or have lived in northwest Montana for decades, we are here for you!
