You belong here ~ join us!

membership

 

Congregation Ahavath Sholom welcomes everyone who has a desire to be part of a warm, creative and inclusive community. The benefits of membership are myriad starting with the comfort of engaging with a thoughtful and genuine group of people interested in personal growth and communal enrichment.

 

Reconstructionist Judaism teaches that there are many gates to developing the sense of belonging to the Jewish people and civilization. Learning, worship, socializing, sharing lives together full of joys and challenges, lifecycle events, festivals and High Holy Days, social action opportunities… these are just some of the reasons to finally seek out the spiritual home you thought you might never find.
 

Our dues structure is sensitive to the ability of people to allocate resources to the important aspects of their lives. Those who can do more may choose to do so and those who cannot are encouraged to speak with our spiritual leader and treasurer to make comfortable financial arrangements. Barbara Cohen, our rabbi, looks forward to speaking with you about your interest in our Ahavath Sholom community. Please be in touch with her at 413-528-4197.

 

If you would like to consider becoming a member (which includes High Holy Days attendance), please download the application form here.

 

Our Sukkah building team ~ Fall 2014

The mission of Congregation Ahavath Sholom is to support a participatory, egalitarian, and inclusive Reconstructionist Jewish community. While recognizing the dynamic and evolving nature of Judaism in modern life, we engage with our traditions to inspire our ethical and spiritual growth. We encourage study, prayer, and celebration, education of children, and acts of caring and social justice.
