Membership

Welcome to Har Sinai Temple! 

Our Synagogue is more than a new building, school or set of programs. It is its membership, pure and simple. Our members come from all over the world, and represent every stream of Jewish thought and practice. But with our membership, we commit ourselves to a journey of discovery, where each of us, in our own way, deepens our connection to Judaism and ties to Israel . Some of us will discover greater Jewish meaning in Torah classes; some from  making new friends in a Jewish Journey Group; others by participating in worship services and singing; while others yet through acts of Tikkun Olam. supports a wide variety of Jewish creativity. Join us and we ‘ ll help you discover your unique path.

The Hebrew term for synagogue is Beit Knesset – Home for Gathering. Some refer to a synagogue as a Bet Midrash – a Home of Study or a Beit Tefillah – a Home for prayer. By forging your own Jewish path with us, we can create a home together that honors all of the meaning and hope in our name.

Join us for Shabbat or an event that interests you and meet some of our members, Rabbi Pollack and Cantor Green. If you’d like more information to learn more about us, we can send you a packet of information including a newsletter, calendar of upcoming events, schedule of services and school brochures.

Membership is open to families and individuals seeking an affiliation with a Reform Jewish Synagogue. Feel free to attend any of our services. Annual dues are based on standards established by the Board of Trustees.

Our membership chairperson, Nancy Barich, would be happy to speak with you regarding any questions you may have. You may reach Nancy or our Temple Administrator, Laura Reiser, at 609-730-8100 for more information.
