At Beth Israel we love to have new members and we begin to welcome them from the first moment we meet them either by phone, by email or personally.
From the moment you enter our building we want you to feel at home, that’s the reason our old members will introduce themselves, they will shake hands with you, they will offer you guidance, and they will receive you as a family member.
Once a year we have a special Friday night dinner to welcome the new members. Every new member and his/her family are introduced to the congregation and receive and nice gift from Beth Israel, including a Blue Book (a directory with all the phone numbers of people in the Jewish community).
The dinner usually takes place before High Holidays so the new members feel comfortable during the holiday’s season. In the last 6 years we welcomed more than 50 new members!!! Isn’t that great?!
Once you become a member of Beth Israel, we don’t consider you a “member”, we consider you a partner!
