Membership

There are two types of membership in Riverdale Temple: a Family membership and a Single membership.

  • A Family membership consists of a two adult household and any children under the age of 26, who are full time students or are unmarried, living in the household,
  • A Single membership consists of a one-adult household and any children under the age of 26, who are full time students or are unmarried, living in the household.

Membership is open to all who wish to follow the Jewish faith, including interfaith couples. Families, couples and singles are welcome. Gays and lesbians are welcome. This is a congregation that believes that if you wish to practice Judaism, no barriers should exist which limit access.

All adults are entitled to vote and hold office. All membership dues include seats for the High Holy Days. Only children of congregants may become Bar or Bat Mitzvah in the temple. Enrollment in our Religious and Hebrew School, without preparation for Bar or Bat Mitzvah, is available to non-members.

Please note: it is the temple policy to turn no one away who wishes to affiliate with the congregation, but does not have the financial means to do so. A discreet conversation with the Financial Secretary will determine the adjusted dues rate.
