Located in the Malibu Mountains, the mission of Shalom Institute is to provide positive Jewish living experiences, skills development, Jewish values development, and an appreciation for life and the environment. The Institute offers programs throughout the year that target individuals of all ages and stages of life. The campus includes a swimming pool, two outdoor amphitheaters, a conference center, adult housing, archery and sports fields, a rope course, climbing wall, hiking trails, two waterfalls, a nature center, and a dining hall. Approximately 25,000 children and adults participate in the Institute’s programs annually.


The Jerry's Place project will renovate and build a state-of-the-art dining hall and a new outdoor patio, benefiting the 25,000 children and adults who participate in programming annually.

The grant from The Foundation is a tremendous boost for the Shalom Institute, and comes at a critical time for us as a newly formed nonprofit. As we build for the future and create a center for camp life, it is very encouraging to know that we have the support of The Foundation and the support of the Jewish community.
