Welcome! Thank you for your interest in our synagogue. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to our warm and welcoming Jewish community.
In order to become a member of Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El, we ask all new members to kindly complete two forms, a Membership Information Form and a Membership Commitment form. The Membership Information Form collects data which helps our clergy, staff and lay volunteers to get to know you and your family a little better. This information will assist our Membership Committee in making introductions for you to other members with whom you may share common interests or have similar aged children. This form also helps us identify your interests within the synagogue, and allows our various committee chairs to contact you as appropriate.
The Membership Commitment Form is where you will make your financial commitment to the synagogue for the fiscal year. We have two options, the “Traditional Commitment Option” and the “Patron Commitment Option.” High Holiday tickets are included in both options. The “Traditional Commitment” option is a membership fee based on a member’s age and marital status. A single member pays at a lower rate than a married member, and discounts apply for members who are over age 65 as well as for our members under 35. Our “Patron Commitment” option is an all inclusive membership and philanthropic commitment to our synagogue. As a token of our appreciation for their philanthropy, Patrons are invited to special events throughout the year. Learn more about all of our membership options in our membership brochure.
Please note that membership in our synagogue community is open to any Jewish person or Jewish family, including interfaith families. Financial need is never a barrier to membership at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El. Need based adjustments are made on an as needed basis. For confidential consideration, please contact our Executive Director, Ken Krivitzky, at (610) 649-5300.
Our clergy, staff and lay leadership look forward to welcoming you. We would be more than delighted to answer your questions and to introduce you and your family to our Jewish community. You and your family are warmly invited to join us for services on Friday evenings, when we have two options. Shirat Shabbat is a spirited, family friendly, lay led service; our “Traditional” Kabbalat Shabbat service is led by our clergy. Both services are preceded by spirits and hors d’oeuvres, enabling our congregants to spend some time socializing. On Shabbat morning, we have a wide range of services and classes, ranging from lay led (Havurah), traditional, youth, family and even a Tot Shabbat service. We welcome you to check the specific times for our various service options on our website. We hope that you will join us at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El, where “our House is your Home.”
