Adat Shalom Photo Gallery

Your Bio

Adat Shalom is unique among major Jewish congregations, providing the full services and programming of a large congregation, along with the warmth and friendly atmosphere usually associated with smaller synagogues. A congregation with many young families, we take a contemporary look at our congregants' needs and priorities and offer a wide range of individual and family programming. While staunchly committed to Israel and to our Jewish brothers and sisters everywhere, we remain focused on our 1150 member families in Farmington Hills and how we can best be here for them.


Happy Times June ‘14

Congregants of all ages enjoy good times at the Synagogue.
