Beth Tikvah Synagogue no longer charges set dues rates for membership. Its pledge-based system, called Terumah, is a “free-will” offering, not a required one. Your Terumah is your membership pledge, an annual voluntary financial commitment that is used for the operating budget. If you are interested in joining the Beth Tikvah family, email Abbe Allexenberg at [email protected] or go to www.bethtikvahsynagogue.org/join-us.html for more information.

Call Shelley Dubin, High Holiday Coordinator, at 508-616-9037, if you have any questions or visit www.bethtikvahsynagogue.org for more information on the High Holidays and Beth Tikvah.
