Membership Information

It is no accident that we are the fastest-growing congregation in Cambridge, in large part because of the warmth of our community. Our welcoming atmosphere is a magnet for empty nesters and young marrieds, single parents, interfaith couples, bar and bat mitzvah students, and families of all configurations.
We share a can-do spirit of active participation and caring connections. Nearly 100 families belong to our community, drawn from Belmont, Boston, Brookline, Newton and Watertown, as well as Somerville and Cambridge. Some even schlep in from Acton and New Hampshire.
There is a strong sense in our community that every member counts and plays a significant role in shaping and sustaining our congregation.

If you are interested in becoming a member please contact Paul Farwell in the office at or by phone  617-497-7626 for complete information.
