Membership

Congregation Har Tzeon-Agudath Achim is a very special place to belong. We are a Traditional Synagogue that will provide your family:

  • A house of worship, learning & assembly
  • Shabbat, holiday and daily services
  • Shabbat youth programming for children 3 years through Bar Mitzvah
  • Early childhood programs
  • Adult education opportunities
  • Sisterhood and Men's clubs
  • Active ways and means programming

We are indeed fortunate to have a caring Rabbi, who visits the sick, provides solace and comfort in times of need, and shares in our times of nachat. As a member, you are entitled to the services of our Rabbi, whether it is for weddings, b'nai mitzvot, baby namings, counseling, or funerals.

You are also entitled to the use of our facilities at special rates that are reserved for members. This also applies to High Holiday seats. Members are entitled to first choice of seats and at lower rates than offered to the general public.

Membership also entitles you to be part of a family of caring people, who reach out to one another in times of need and times of great joy. We have a place to belong! A place where each and every member is special!

Members of the Congregation are notified of family Yahrzeits that are kept on file, informed of ongoing events through our monthly Reporter, and keep in touch with one another through our Membership Directory.
