Marlboro Jewish Center (Ohev Shalom) has been proudly serving the needs of our thriving Jewish community by nurturing our traditions and enriching our contemporary, Jewish lifestyle since 1971. Rich in tradition and history we have always been committed to being an egalitarian synagogue. We are large enough to be a full-service, modern, Conservative congregation, offering you and your family every opportunity to expand your Jewish horizons, but at the same time, our goal is to be warm and welcoming.

Ohev Shalom is more than a synagogue, more than a religious school and pre-school, more than a center for life-cycle events. We strive to be a caring community of people just like you. We aim to help our congregants on their Jewish Journeys, finding a greater purpose and meaning in their daily lives. We aspire to make our community and our world a better place through active Jewish living and Jewish learning.

Ohev Shalom is constantly brimming with activity and meaningful Jewish participation. We invite you to take the Jewish Journey with us and find out why so many families have chosen Ohev Shalom. Come to Marlboro Jewish center and: LET OUR HOUSE OF WORSHIP BE YOUR HOME.
