Membership dues payment

Welcome and thank you for considering membership at TBI. 

Membership is the way that we stand up to be counted in our community.

Why become a member of Temple Beth Israel

One might come to apply for membership for lifecycle reasons (celebrating a birth, mourning a death, starting Torah School), a desire to attend Seder or Yom Kippur Services, conversion, or to participate in a social justice cause. The true purpose of becoming a member is to pursue spiritual growth.

The relationship between TBI and our members is symbiotic. TBI supports our members' quest for meaning, significance, and connection through Judaism. The members support the synagogue's growth and shape the evolving Jewish way of life. Temple Beth Israel makes a commitment to our members to provide services, holidays, events, education, and pastoral support. Members make a financial commitment, shape the synagogue culture, and vote to elect the synagogue leadership.

Renewing or paying for your membership

User login is required to use payment features.

Membership commitments can be made either annually or in monthly recurring installments. Annual plans expire after 12 months, and annual members will receive a renewal notice via e-mail as the renewal date approaches. Monthly installment plans automatically renew each month until you cancel. TBI accepts payments online via PayPal, cash, check, credit/debit, or ACH (direct debit). Please contact us if you'd like to arrange for a direct debit on a one-time or recurring basis.

Additionally, we encourage everyone to renew memberships as early as possible. On our side, having a count of our membership numbers and budget well before High Holidays helps us to plan more effectively for the events we want to offer. On your side, renewing early ensures that you won’t miss out on any of TBI’s offerings and will have a packet waiting for you when you arrive at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

As always, we recognize that some people in our community face challenging financial circumstances, and for these people even the Member tier may not be possible. We are always willing to work with our members’ budgets to find a contribution that is meaningful but financially feasible—just email, or speak with one of our clergy. We never want money to stand in the way of being a part of our community. 


Paying by check or money order or in person?

Please make all checks out to Temple Beth Israel of Highland Park and mail to:

Temple Beth Israel
Attn: TBI Membership
5711 Monte Vista Street
Los Angeles, CA 90042


 Virtually all of our operating budget comes from individuals. A major portion of those individuals are members.

Without a strong membership base, TBI would not be able to offer the services, education opportunities, and cultural connectivity that have been our greatest strengths.

We have striven to keep our dues as low as possible, believing as we do that money should not be a barrier to participation.

Have a special circumstance? Need to arrange for alternate payment? Or any other questions, contact: or call  (323) 629-4299
