At Temple Beth-El, membership is a sacred relationship between the individual and the entire congregation. Becoming a member of the Temple means embracing certain responsibilities, just as the congregation, clergy, and staff, accept responsibilities toward each member.


Our clergy and staff are committed to leading our members into growing relationships with Jewish community, wisdom, and practice; helping them thrive intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually; and inspiring them to build a better world. We are committed to providing you and your family a nurturing congregational home, inspiring spiritual spaces and religious services, illuminating lifelong Jewish learning, meaningful lifecycle celebrations and observances, pastoral care and spiritual guidance during difficult times, and more.

But membership isn’t a mere transaction. It’s more than just what the clergy and staff pledge to do for you and your family. Becoming a member also means agreeing to advance our congregation’s purpose and striving to embody our core values through involvement in congregational life, taking steps to grow Jewishly, to support others on their Jewish journeys, and to forge a more just, compassionate and peaceful society. Membership is about what the Temple does for you, but also about what you do for the Temple, for the community, and for the world.

Membership at Temple Beth-El is a commitment to sustain an institution that helps people thrive through Judaism. Annual membership dues are one crucial way we ensure our continued strength and sustainability, though membership is open to all, regardless of means. If you are able to give at a higher level than what we ask from those in your membership category, we strongly encourage you to do so, and are grateful for your generous gift. Whatever your financial contribution, we hope you will find other ways to make our congregation vibrant by giving of your time and talents as a volunteer.
