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.

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.
Membership commitment is offered in many levels, including Individual, Family, Senior Single, and Senior Couple. Special student memberships are also available, as is need-based financial aid.
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: email@example.com or call (323) 629-4299
