At United Hebrew, we welcome everyone and pride ourselves on our intimacy and warmth. We offer a variety of traditional and family oriented services to meet the needs and interests of a diverse, multi-generational community. To fill out a Membership Application, click here.
Through prayer, song, study, social action, and interaction United Hebrew offers members opportunities to attend services that are both comfortable and deeply spiritual. We welcome prospective members to attend one of our services and to meet Rabbi Rosenberg as well as Rabbi Bellows and Cantor Eichaker and our congregants to get a true feel for our community.

- Access to the Rabbis and Cantor
- Educational and worship opportunities that are enlightening and interactive

At United Hebrew all members are asked to make an annual financial commitment to support the congregation. Membership rates are published each calendar year and include:
- Special membership rates for young adults/families
- Adults who are younger than 30 years of age are welcome to join the congregation for a voluntary annual donation, or at no charge
- The annual commitment for members between the ages of 30-39 starts at a low annual rate and increases each successive year in small increments to ease the impact of the change on your budget
- Special membership rates for single adults and single-parent families
- United Hebrew is firmly committed to keeping membership accessible to everyone. No one is denied membership due to financial circumstances.
Each year United Hebrew members are asked to complete a Membership Commitment Form with convenient automatic payment options. This enables you to tailor payments to your budget, while allowing the congregation to meet vital revenue targets to maintain organizational stability. We would appreciate your returned form by January 17, 2017.
