Thank you for your interest in Beth Israel. Whether your initial contact with us is by phone, email or in person, you will receive a warm welcome.

Beth Israel is the spiritual home for Jews of all ages and backgrounds, including interfaith families. We are proud of our vibrant, inclusive congregation. Our goal is for our members to feel like they are a part of our congregational family.


Membership is a relationship between you and the entire Beth Israel community for which you will receive both tangible and intangible benefits.  These include:

  • Free High Holiday tickets
  • Free adult education programs
  • Eligibility for children to attend Beth Israel Hebrew School and the Joint Community Religious School (Sunday School)
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation
  • Being part of a supportive, caring congregation
  • Opportunities to share special occasions and life cycle events with your congregational family
  • Helping to assure the continuity of Jewish life in the Roanoke Valley


Individual, family and associate memberships are available. Each year the Board of Directors establishes suggested minimum dues for each category of membership. Beth Israel is sensitive to our congregants’ financial needs and will grant in a confidential manner dues relief if a congregant cannot pay the suggested minimum dues. The cost of membership should not be a deterrent to prospective members
