Membership

Becoming a member of the Tremont Street Shul brings the opportunity to join a Jewish community that is committed to meaningful worship, learning, belonging, growth, and mutual support. Whether you are new to Cambridge, here for just a few years, or raising a family here, we want you to feel welcome! Other than the High Holidays, services are free and open to all, and you always have an open invitation to join us for our kiddush lunch following Shabbat morning services. We are particularly proud to be a congregation comprising deeply engaged young adults, couples, individuals, and families with children of all ages.

We have several categories of membership: Under 30 (for individuals newly out of college/in school -- and with limited financial resources), Single Adult, and Two Adult, as well as two sustaining categories, Double Chai and Triple Chai with additional benefits. Any children of yours who are currently living with you or in college are automatically included in your membership, and for member/non-member ticketed events or programs, adults and children are included. The only exception is for High Holiday seating, for which the number of included seats varies by category, with children an additional amount for all but the Double/Triple Chai categories. See tables below for details, however nobody will be turned away based on ability to pay. For more information about membership, please e-mail the office or call us at 617.864.6388.
