This has been a year like no other. Now more than ever, we know the blessings and importance of connection and community—and now more than ever, we need your support so that B’nai Jeshurun can continue to nourish your soul, connect you to community, and respond to the crises of our times. Our tradition calls on us to respond to the needs of the moment, and we continue to feed the hungry, work to build a more just, equitable future, and celebrate and honor the humanity and dignity of all. 

For BJ, social and spiritual connection transcends physical distance. We have risen to the challenges the pandemic has thrust upon us by engaging our diverse community via VirtuShul prayer and programs more than ever before. As we look toward the High Holy Days, we are inspired by our growing community, and we ask you to consider what it means to have BJ in your life at this moment.

Joining our sacred community or renewing your membership is a statement of your commitment to BJ and the work we do together to build a better world. Your membership includes:

  • Access to meaningful members-only online Elul and High Holy Days programming and gatherings which will provide a rich tapestry for soul searching, reflection, and connection with fellow community members
  • A High Holy Days care package with materials to enrich your at-home celebration
  • Priority location access for next year’s High Holy Days seating (upon renewing membership next year)
  • Pastoral care and guidance for life moments and milestones
  • The spiritual nourishment of being part of a loving, caring, and vibrant Jewish community—and of knowing that you are contributing to its present and future

To ensure that you receive your High Holy Days care package, please join or renew your membership by August 15. New and returning members who have joined by August 15 will receive this special care package.

Joining BJ for the first time?

Welcome! Please review our Membership FAQ to learn about the benefits of membership. Contact Matthew Davey to schedule a time to learn more about joining our community.

Though we refer to it as “membership,” we invite you to think of it as “sustainership” by making a contribution that helps to sustain and grow our sacred community.
