TBE & Reform Judaism

Temple Beth El Synagogue is proud to be affiliated to Reform Judaism.

We welcome applications for membership from all who are Jewish – whether this Jewish line is on their fathers’ or their mothers’ side – and couples or families where at least one member is Jewish.

TBE Families

Our TBE Family membership is open to EVERYONE.

This includes those in same-sex partnerships, as well as single parent families where the children are Jewish but the parent is not.

TBE is self-supporting, and all members contribute financially to the running of the temple. We employ a 'fair share' dues policy and request your pledge be 2% of your gross household income. This way all members support the temple according to their means, and by paying their fair share we can extend membership to all.

Please fill in the interest form below and someone will contact you to about your interest in joining our wonderful temple!

2024 Dues Pledge/Payment - Please complete each section below:
  • No one will be denied Temple membership if they make a pledge based on their ability to contribute, and then keep their agreement.  The Temple holds all financial matters in confidence.
  • Members are expected to pay their voluntary fair share of dues.  The Board of Directors suggests using at least 2% of gross annual income as a guideline. However, we encourage giving above this amount as this helps us support all our members and ensure that everyone has access to a center for Jewish life, education, and worship.
  • All members must pay their dues and maintenance/facility fee according to the payment schedule they choose.  They must remain current on that schedule in order to be able to have their children in school, to have Life Cycle events at the Temple, to participate in committees or on the Board, or attend High Holy Day Services.
  • Members who experience a change in their financial situation must let the Finance Director or Administrator know as soon as possible so that adjustments can be made to their fee schedule.
  • 30-day letters will be sent to members who are in arrears.  If no arrangement has been made and no payment received, their membership will be suspended.  If no arrangements are made after 15 more days, their membership may be revoked.
