Am Shalom is a Reform Jewish Congregation and as such is built on the thousands of years of Jewish heritage.

We strive to support and enrich the Jewish values of knowledge, social responsibility and caring for present and future generations. Am Shalom Congregation is committed to supporting our Community. This means the Barrie/Simcoe County community as well as the Jewish community at large.  When you join Am Shalom a portion of your fees go towards our community and social action events.  Am Shalom is about forming bonds of friendship as well as being in a group that is proud to be fully engaged in social action.  

We actively support the Barrie Food Bank, Gilda's Club, Out of The Cold, the JNF, Yom Hashoa Yellow Candle Program and many others through out the year.  

Our community events include our Grey Cup party, Fishing trips, Spa Days, Movie nights, Guest speakers, Annual Chai Tea, Dances, our annual Golf Tournament and others.
