Our membership provides a rich cross-section of Jewish life and life-styles; including a range of ages from birth to members in their 90's, all socio-economic levels and many Jews from other countries.

Our synagogue community and its membership have evolved over these many years and offers a warm and enthusiastic welcome to its new members. In addition to the enclosed materials, tours are available upon request and may be arranged through the Temple office.
