Congregation B'nai Tikvah welcomes all interested members of the Jewish community to our spiritual home. We are a thriving, Reform congregation dedicated to learning, music-infused prayer, personal relationships, and a commitment to social justice. We welcome all who are looking to explore the many innovative paths to the meaning that Judaism has to offer. The standard annual commitment level for membership for the fiscal year beginning July 1, and ending June 30, is $2975 plus a mandatory $275 building maintenance fund contribution. Both membership annual commitment and the building fund contribution are tax-deductible. If this commitment level is beyond your means, please contact our Executive Director.

Commitments may be paid in a variety of ways on a schedule that works for your household: 1. In full by check; 2. Auto withdrawal from checking accounts or credit card; 3. By credit card online through the Members section of our website.

All members are asked to co-sponsor an Oneg following Shabbat services once a year. This may be done by signing up for a week of your choice to contribute one of the noshing components to the oneg. Many people choose a date that corresponds with a Yahrzeit or special Shabbat.

Please note that Religious School fees, if applicable, are separate from the membership commitment.
