Yom Chamishi, 7 Av 5778

One of the most important gifts we can give ourselves and our children is the knowledge and comfort that we are not alone. Through worship, study and tikkun olam, we affirm our support for each other. This participation and commitment, above all things, has sustained our Jewish heritage for almost 6,000 years.

In true family tradition we envision full participation by every member, where each person can discover a meaningful role. At the same time, we recognize that Judiasm is not "one size fits all". Given the diversity of our members of various backgrounds and interests, we seek to offer an array of modes of worship, education and activities for each member.

There are many paths to community at Chai. Congregants can choose from a wide range of groups and activities, including: youth groups, Chai young adults, Havurot and Journey Groups, Men's Club and Sisterhood, as well as synagogue-wide concerts and cultural activities.

To join our family, email our Membership Director.

Welcome to Beit Haverim!

The Path to Membership is a Journey to Deeper Commitment – Beit Haverim membership represents a deeper connection with your spiritual community.

Beit Haverim is a dynamic Reform congregation, which has succeeded in creating an open, inviting, and spiritually-alive Jewish community.  Beit Haverim welcomes people all along the Jewish spectrum. Membership and participation in our congregation is open to Jews by Birth, Jews by Choice, and anyone with a connection to Judaism.

Over the years we've watched our children blossom into adults, secure in their Jewish identity. We've seen unaffiliated Jews, single members, and families of all types find kindred spirits and make enduring friendships. We've danced at weddings, rejoiced at namings, and cried together in times of loss. We've transcended religious differences and joined hands in interfaith worship. We welcome you to join us.

Our Mission ...

To provide meaningful opportunities for families and individuals to join together for Jewish education, celebration, tzedakah, and worship.

Our Driving Force...

Is a common desire for our families and children to share a sense of Jewish belonging which comes from hands on ownership.

Our Vision ...

Is a community where Jews by Birth, Jews by Choice, and Jews at Heart are accepted and feel a sense of belonging.  We honor the richness and tradition of Judaism in a manner that's accessible to everyone.
