Members of long standing can attest to the friendships started at Congregation Ner Tamid as they often reminisce about Religious School, Purim carnivals, and Shabbat Dinners. They can tell you about how wonderful it was to share a simchah with Temple friends, and how supportive the entire Temple community can be in times of need.

To be a member, one must apply for membership and make membership dues a commitment. There are no extra charges for High Holy Day services, but there is tuition for Religious and Hebrew School.

Our policy is to not refuse membership because of financial inability to pay the full membership contribution. All dues reduction requests are held in strict confidence, and are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Members who believe they qualify for a financial reduction should mail the dues relief application to the Temple office or email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

In addition to making a financial commitment, we hope that those becoming members will make a commitment to participate fully in the life of the synagogue by attending services, various educational and social programs, and by volunteering their time and energy as needed.
