Temple Ohav Shalom offers a welcoming spirit – warm and inclusive. We are a thriving Reform Jewish congregation in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA with a current membership of more than 200 families. The Temple provides religious, cultural and social opportunities in a comfortable atmosphere of community, worship, study, social action, friendship and spiritual growth.
Our Temple is affiliated with The Union for Reform Judaism, which provides vision and leadership to Reform Jews and congregations on spiritual, ethical, social justice and management issues as well as programmatic support to Reform Jewish congregations. The URJ offers opportunities for individual growth and identity that few congregations could provide by themselves.

“I believe that Judaism is a way of life, a celebration of life. It is being part of a diverse community that cares about its families. Our Torah and its teachings are gifts that call us to serve humanity created in the image of God.” – Rabbi Art Donsky
Learn a little about the Temple’s history.
This solitary figure stands frozen in prayer and in time on behalf of us all. He is a haunting reminder that in the face of unspeakable evil, the loss of a multitude is no more devastating than the loss of an individual. The memory of one man and his family prompted this memorial. Label Roseman was only one. His family, his community and his God – only one. With so many to remember, we are humbled in the presence of this solitary figure. The Temple Ohav Shalom Holocaust Memorial Garden, dedicated on October 9, 2000, is erected here in memory of a victim of the Shoah, Label Roseman. He was the brother of congregant Jack Roseman, who never met him and who never will forget him. May his name be for a blessing.
At Temple Ohav Shalom we very often play host to member b’nai mitzvot, baby namings, weddings and other major life events. Learn more about what we have to offer.
