Welcome to CSH!

Congregation Shaar Hashalom is a conservative synagogue that serves southeast Houston in the Clear Lake area. We are dedicated to strengthening our member families through education, worship, and fellowship. CSH is a member congregation of the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism and is served by Rabbi Stuart Federow.

Formed in 1969, the congregation is small, warm, and welcoming. CSH is a place to meet, study, learn, and discuss all issues related to Judaism and the Jewish community. We support both a Hebrew and a religious school to educate our children, and provide two active youth groups. Our members participate in adult education programs and community service activities, and support both an active Sisterhood and Men's Club.

To arrange a visit, please call our office at 281-488-5861 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you have.

We also rely on the support and input of our congregants. If you are already a member, please consider serving on the CSH board or one of the various committees. In addition, if you have any ideas for new programming, please let the rabbi or a board member know! With your help, CSH can remain the active, involved, creative congregation that we all want it to be.
