Membership Services


Membership Services is the central point of contact for members on any question: registering new members or people who used to be members of the Community in the past, issuing confirmations of registration, answering a range of verbal and written enquiries, helping to resolve all kinds of problems that members of the Community are experiencing, and collecting contributions.

We maintain the members' database and are therefore the central body which manages and must be notified of any changes (names, addresses, nationality, marital status, delivery of newspapers). If you want to report any changes, please contact our membership service.

Temple tickets for the High Holidays are available at Member Services.
