Bet Aviv encourages all prospective members to review our website to get an initial sense for our values. One of the best ways to get to know us is by attending a Shabbat service. So that we can be prepared to welcome you, we ask that you contact Lori Kassoff, our membership chair to let her know you’re coming. Lori can answer any questions you might have. Once you join, you’ll receive a Welcome Bag with goodies, music and information, that we think you’ll find useful, as well as your name tags, which we hope you will wear to future Shabbat services so that we can learn your name.
During the year Bet Aviv hosts two events specifically geared to new members.
New Member Shabbat
Once a year we highlight members who have joined within the previous year at our New Member Shabbat. New members participate in our service as candle lighters, readers and in the Torah service. It’s a warm tradition that Bet Aviv uses to make our new members feel welcome and part of our family.
New Member Reception
In the fall of each year, we invite our new members to come to a get together whose purpose is three-fold. First we want to impart information about Bet Aviv and answer any questions you might have. Second, it’s a chance for our leaders and Rabbi to get to know our new members. Last, but certainly not least, it’s a chance for our new members to get to know each other in an informal atmosphere. Our goal is to make you feel welcome and let you know the various ways that you can become involved at Bet Aviv.
