THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A MEMBER?

We thank you for considering membership. Membership in our synagogue community is open to any Jewish person or Jewish family, including interfaith families. We are a multi-generational, inclusive community and welcome individuals and families with various ability levels and family structures. Financial need is never a barrier to membership at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El. Need-based adjustments are made on an as-needed basis.

We have a different membership paradigm than most.

Our Community Circle Model provides multiple entry points for membership and has been featured in articles and books in recent years.  For those interested in a full membership experience, we have two primary 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.

Our clergy, staff and lay leadership look forward to welcoming you to our Jewish community. You and your family are invited to join us for services on Friday evenings and Shabbat morning, when we have a wide range of services and classes, ranging from lay-led (Havurah), traditional, youth and family. During the summer, we feature several outdoor Kabbalat Shabbat Services and a more intimate Shabbat morning service in our Holocaust Memorial Chapel. We hope that you will join us at Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El, where “our House is your Home.”
