Join CBS

As Jews, we have an obligation to support our Jewish community by belonging to a synagogue. It is the only way we can guarantee that each generation will continue to pass the Torah on to the next generation.

The strength of Congregation Beth Shalom is in its membership. As in any voluntary organization, our congregation is sustained through monetary and service commitments of our members. A member’s financial obligation to the Synagogue is based on a dues schedule, with different categories designed to accommodate the diversity of our congregation.

Individual or family memberships are available. The generosity of those who can afford to make additional commitments is greatly appreciated. By the same token, no one will ever be turned away from Congregation Beth Shalom owing to an inability to meet the standard dues schedule. Should there be any questions in this regard, our VP of Membership or our Treasurer will be happy to seek a fair and equitable solution with complete confidentiality.

If you have questions regarding CBS membership, please contact our Membership VP, Bob Stone at (562)-818-9137.
