Become a Member

We would be delighted for you to become a part of our community. This congregation is filled with beautiful contradictions – an elegant, historic sanctuary and an intimate, embracing chapel; an active group of knowledgeable sages and a vibrant young adult community; a love of enduring Jewish traditions and a drive for spiritual innovation and forward motion; a commitment to the inner life of our congregational family and a constant energetic force that engages in the work of building a more complete and just world. It is a very full experience of Jewish life. We hope that you will find membership an enriching experience and we encourage you to explore the diverse opportunities that Touro Synagogue offers.

One of Touro’s most cherished values is inclusivity, in that each member is welcomed with open arms into the community. When it comes to financial support, the way we actualize this value is through our Voluntary Annual Support Pledge system (VASP). VASP enables each household to contribute to Touro at a level that is comfortable and meaningful to them. Because of this welcoming approach, newer and younger members can come to know our community without feeling compelled to donate beyond their means. Many are able to increase their support over time, others cannot, and yet everyone is a part of the Touro family.

We value the uniqueness of each congregant and we are committed to providing a community that is inclusive and accessible. If you or someone in your family requires special accommodations in order to access the fullness of synagogue life, please contact the office at (504) 895-4843.
