Membership

A synagogue is a place where you want to feel at home, nourished, nurtured and spiritually fulfilled; a place where your soul, heart and head are touched. It is a place where you and your children feel a sense of relevance. It is a place where you are safe, where you are stimulated, and where you will find a welcoming community.

Membership at MCJC is not just about paying your annual dues. It’s about affirming your role as a partner and stakeholder, and sharing your time, talent, and treasure with a community of which you are a vital part. When you become a member of MCJC, you are able to fully experience this dynamic community in three ways:

SPIRITUALITY: Our worship combines traditional Jewish liturgy with joyous dance and song. We are a house of worship for all people. All are welcome.

COMMUNITY: We are a community of spiritual seekers. In joining this congregation, our members are making a statement: “This is my spiritual home.”

WISDOM: MCJC seeks to deepen your knowledge of our faith, our traditions, our community, and our lives. It is Jewish learning, elevated.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member.
