WINTER STORM RELIEF EFFORTS

Our Shalom Austin Family is here for you now and in the days ahead. This past week’s weather plunged our city and state into a frigid state of emergency and our staff and lay leaders have been working hard to connect with those in need while partnering with Austin City officials and support services. Click here to learn more about our Winter Storm Relief Efforts.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Your health and safety is our number one priority. Due to COVID-19, some of our programs and services may be offered online, have a new in-person schedule and requirements, or may be suspended. Please check our website or contact us for more information. Click here for our COVID-19 safety precautions and updates. We’re in this together… six feet apart.

We’re the Hub of Jewish Life in Central Texas.

Shalom Austin enhances the quality of Jewish life in the greater Austin area and around the world through philanthropy, education, social service, culture, spirituality and total wellness. 

OUR IMPACT

It all starts with you. You make everything we do possible.
