Our congregation is made up of singles, young families, empty nesters, and seniors. The congregation includes Jews of all backgrounds, including many Jews by choice and interfaith families. Although we are affiliated with the Union of Reform Judaism (URJ), we use both Reform and Conservative siddurim (prayer books) for our holiday services and observances.
Although most congregational activities are open to the entire community, members enjoy specific benefits, including reduced Religious School tuition, access to advice and support from URJ professionals, and the opportunity to attend UJF- and URJ-sponsored conferences , classes and retreats (with discounts or scholarships available only to members of UJF- and URJ-affiliated congregations). Members in good standing may vote on the congregation’s annual budget and other synagogue business and may serve on the Board or as officers of Brith Sholem.
Our membership dues are structured for households, singles, and students at extremely reasonable rates. Dues for a given year are payable at any time between September 1 and August 31.
If you are thinking of becoming a member of Congregation Brith Sholem, we encourage you to attend services or other congregational events first, and to talk with synagogue leaders or other members.
