Membership FAQ

How often do you have services?

What are the services like?

Our services might be classified “traditional Reform,” with more traditional elements than “classic Reform.” All the Hebrew is transliterated for those who haven’t learned to read Hebrew.  There’s lots of music and singing.

How many members does Berith Sholom have?

We currently have about 120 member units–individuals and families.

What do I get for my membership dues?

Oodles. On top of the regular benefits of membership like school for your children, access to summer camps and retreats, congregation dinners and more, our Rabbi, staff, and members will be there to support you through life’s challenges and joys. You will also be supporting our synagogue and the great programs we offer. Our members find they get back much more than they pay for.
