Thinking about becoming a member? We would love to have you join!

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. 

For those that are not interested in a full membership experience, there are two additional membership options. An Associate Membership is available for those individuals who are members of another Jewish congregation. Our Friends of TBH-BE is our Virtual Membership and is available for those that live outside of the Lower Merion area. 

Learn more about our membership categories and their benefits. 

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 or on Shabbat morning, when we have a wide range of services and classes, ranging from lay led (Havurah), traditional, youth, family and even a Tot Shabbat service. 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.”    

Ready to join? For new members, please fill out our Membership Information Form and our Membership Commitment Form (with rates and options). The membership information form allows us to get to know you better. The membership commitment form lets us know about what membership option you would like and how you would like to contribute to the synagogue.
