“Membership at Temple Beth Emeth is an experience of long-lasting friendships,
thought-provoking learning and meaningful worship. You’re wanted here.”

-Candace Bulkley


Thank you for your interest in joining Temple Beth Emeth.  We believe passionately that becoming a member of our temple will provide you with opportunities to explore Judaism in our community. Through membership, you’ll develop relationships with our caring clergy, staff and fellow congregants. We offer regular services, religious and Hebrew school, inspiring education programs for adults and many unique programs and events.

Ours is a diverse, inclusive community that nurtures relationships. Together we pray, celebrate, engage and learn from one another. 

Temple Beth Emeth is a Fair Share congregation. Annual dues are calculated based on adjusted gross household income at various rates depending on income (see link to the membership commitment schedule). We ask all members to make two financial commitments, one for annual operations and the other for a capital fund pledge, to support our building.  The suggested capital fund pledge is a minimum of $2000, with the ability to pay over a period of up to five years. 

Finances are never a barrier to participation at TBE. We offer reduced financial commitment to those who many need help with membership dues. Scholarships are available for Hebrew and religious tuition. 

Inquiries are treated with strict confidentiality. To get started and make a plan that works best for you and/or your family, please contact Melissa Sigmond, our Executive Director.
