Join Our Community

We welcome each and every one of our members with open arms, excited to involve them in events, activities, and services. With many benefits, such as classes, reduced fees for lifecycle events, no charges for burials and stone consecrations, and a subscription to our magazine (The Great Vine), there’s never been a better time to join The Great Synagogue.

Membership is $500 per year, with an extra charge if you would like a brass plaque with a designated seat. Your money goes towards the Synagogue staff, building, and services, meaning our congregation has a nicer experience as the years go on.

Members of our community especially enjoy coming to synagogue and feeling like a family member instead of a visitor or a guest. You’ll meet many other members, some from families with a history with the synagogue going back many generations. We pride ourselves on the fact that, in these times where most people are behind their phone or computer screens, we have created a place where people can feel confident talking to the person next to them, or comfortable in their solitude, should they wish to sit and reflect. We celebrate the good times, and commiserate in difficult times, bringing our congregation closer together.

Rabbi Elton and his wife Hinda like to host as many members of the Synagogue for Shabbat meals as possible. They also hold events at their home at least once a month with an open invitation for all members.
