About Us

Welcome to Temple Beth Shalom of Boca Raton

Who We Are

I am Howard Rosenhouse, the President of Temple Beth Shalom of Boca Raton.  I invite you to visit and ultimately join our wonderful Temple family.  Our Temple is situated behind the walls of Century Village Boca, which is located at 19140 Lyons Road, between Kimberly Boulevard and Yamato Road.  There are no geographic restrictions on joining our Temple. Please call me at 561-483-5557 to make arrangements to meet with me.  I would be happy to inform you of our programs, religious services and other activities.

Our Shabbat services begin at 9:30 AM each Saturday morning. On Thursday mornings, we have a minyan service at 8:30 AM following by Bagels and .Bible (a light breakfast and discussion meeting with our Rabbi).

Annual membership is $250 per person and there are no Building Funds or assessments imposed as a condition to join us.  Donations are encouraged, especially when you have an honor, at Yahrzeit times and for other reasons.  Donations are the life-blood of all Temples. We have recently started a special fund to replace the curtains on our ark and the cloths on our Rabbi’s and Cantor’s podiums, and a Security fund.

We are an egalitarian Temple.  Our women are counted in minyans, may sit with men, receive aliyot and other honors and participate in our active Sisterhood.  Sisterhood meetings are held on Monday mornings, 10:00 AM once per month.

We have an active Men’s Club, which meets on a Sunday morning at 10:00 AM once per month. Women are welcome at these meetings.  There are also Congregation meetings throughout the year.

Our meetings include sharing information about the operation of our Temple, lectures, entertainment and a light breakfast.

In season, we have an Adult Education program sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County that meets monthly on a Sunday at 10 AM.  Interesting lectures and entertainers are presented.

Our religious services are led by Rabbi Michael Gold, PhD, and Cantor Sagee Goldenholz.  Members are encouraged to arrange to chant Haftorahs and read from the Torah on  Saturdays.  Our Ritual Committee assigns honors for Saturday services and is led by Judith Gannon and Stuart Lobel and assisted by Judith Waldman.

Our Clergy

Cantor Sagee Goldenholz

Our own Cantor Goldenholz was born in Cleveland, Ohio and grew up surrounded by Jewish music.  He began his musical education at age five studying classical piano.  At the early age of 19, Sagee began his career as a Cantor and soon after he was appointed to his first pulpit in South Florida.  He has performed with the Florida Grand Opera, Palm Beach Opera and in various concerts and recitals throughout Florida and abroad.  He is a graduate of the University of Miami and he and his wife, Shera, have three children.
