Membership at ATC

Joining a synagogue is more than just becoming a member.

For some, joining a synagogue is about finding a spiritual home. For others, it's a place to engage with old friends and meet new ones. Some come to learn and explore Jewish tradition, others for simchas, and others to find support during times of sorrow.

When you break it down, the word synagogue comes from the Greek roots sun - "together", and agein - "bring". Bring together. Joining a synagogue is choosing to be an active part of a community that comes together, again and again.

Ahavath Torah Congregation is unique. Like most other synagogues in the area, we offer various membership benefits such as services, holidays, religious school, adult learning, lecture series, brother-and-sisterhood. What sets us apart is our dedication to continuously improving our community. For those that want a voice, we are a lay-led congregation that not only promotes, but encourages member-driven initiatives. This includes our family Shabbat services, community outreach programs, and our shared religious space. We welcome program suggestions, feedback, and any and all ideas.

We are grateful for your interest in Ahavath Torah Congregation (ATC), and we hope to be together many times over the coming years.
