Membership Application



Congregation Beth Israel welcomes all who wish to join our warm, welcoming, and modern Reform Jewish congregation. Established in 1854 and the oldest synagogue in Texas, we have a rich history and a legacy of leadership. Membership provides a wealth of opportunities to connect with our clergy and congregational family, your spirituality, and with the local community. One of the primary benefits of a large, well-established congregation is the ability for everyone to find their place - choose from a variety of worship, community, social action, and learning opportunities that appeal to young and old alike. Our synagogue is the place that we turn to for our most meaningful moments in life. We hope that you will embrace Beth Israel as an extension of your family so that we may share those special lifecycle events together.

Our congregation, like every congregation, depends on the financial support of its members to open its doors every day and to provide all of our offerings to the community. At Congregation Beth Israel, we ask each member to make an annual Fair Share Contributions Commitment based on each family’s ability to contribute, regardless of their income level. We understand that each member has a different capacity to give. You can be assured that you will never be asked to reveal your income, however, we do hope that you will consider your resources when you determine the amount of your commitment.
