says executive director Jim
Brandt. The tile wall was
dedicated by the mayor of
Cambridge in a ceremony in
June.
The congregation had much
to celebrate. In a city which
once had five congregations,
Jewish life had steadily
declined until recently. "The
Jewish population kept
shrinking in the 40s and 50s
and then there were just two
synagogues left until the ear-
ly 60s, Mr. Brandt says.
"Neither one could raise a mi-
nyan."
So they merged to create a
new congregation, Beth
Shalom, and the members
chose as their headquarters
the Tremont Street shul. It
was a small and dwindling

congregation — until a recent
turnaround brought a surge
of new members, many of
them young, and a new ex-
ecutive director who, at age
29, is typical of the youthful
congregation.
Although Beth Shalom still
has no rabbi, its membership
has increased to 200 families.
Facilities now include a day
care program, Hebrew classes
and adult education pro-
grams. And last October, Beth
Shalom's Simchat Torah
celebration drew over 1,000
participants who danced out-
side on Tremont Street.
"There are lots of chal-
lenges ahead," Mr. Brandt
says."But our membership
continues to grow. This con-
gregation is here to stay."
