Membership

Visitors to Berman's are often overwhelmed by the warmth and welcome that is immediately felt from the get-go. In recent years our membership has grown at a rate unknown by other synagogues in the area. While the original members of Berman’s were largely olim from English-speaking countries, the shul now enjoys three generations of members including young families who grew up in the community, new olim and even families from other parts of Israel who have heard about us. We invite you to sample our hospitality and consider joining our community.

Contact Jerry Kriger for further information.

Membership privileges

We are often asked what’s included in our membership. The primary benefit of course is to be part of the Berman Kehilla and being part of it means helping to contribute towards our ongoing success. Funded by the membership, the Community provides various activities and services such as:
  • Lectures, Shiurim and a website rich with educational and other information including printed and audio materials
  • A weekly bulletin and other special email notices
  • Tzeddaka and Gemach to help the surrounding community through Berman led projects.
  • Youth activities
  • Hospitality for newcomers
  • Weekly kiddushim 
  • Organizing mealtrains for families with new babies or, G-d forbid and lehavdil, bereavements
Besides participating in the above, as a member you and your family will have privileges that include:
  • Announcement of your smachot and bereavements
  • Shiva support, including mealtrains, chairs, Sefer Tora and help recruiting a minyan
  • Priority booking and discounts for community special events and high-holiday seats. (Registration for this year, 5782, will be a requirement for booking and paying for seats for next Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur  as members.)
  • The right to participate and vote in General Meetings (family head or heads, not dependents)
  • Access to “member-only” parts of the website, providing access to board meeting documents and to the membership directory
  • A copy of the print edition of the membership directory
