Thank you for your interest in membership at Temple Beth Rishon. Please take a few moments to read about our vibrant community of over 430 families and the multiple opportunities we offer the members of our congregation.   

Founded in 1975, Temple Beth Rishon is a warm and energetic community that welcomes individuals and families from diverse Jewish backgrounds. Our congregants represent an amazing cross-section of individuals with strong spiritual Judaic backgrounds as well as those who feel more of a cultural connection. We fully embrace each of our congregants: those who were born Jewish, those who choose to be Jewish, and those who are part of an interfaith family. We are an independent and egalitarian community that appeals to people who identify with either the Conservative or the Reform movements and we recognize both matrilineal and patrilineal descent.

A distinguishing feature of our temple is the ability to develop relationships - spiritual, educational and social. The relationships that we develop within the Temple Beth Rishon community reinforce our foundation, ensuring the strength and longevity of our temple. TBR is the place where your children will form their first bonds to Jewish tradition, where you will find spiritual and educational choices and where you will create lifelong friendships. Whether you spend time with us three days each year or three hundred days a year, you will feel this connection!  

We warmly invite you to join our TBR community! We understand that choosing a temple is a big decision, so we encourage you to explore and get acquainted with all areas of our community prior to making your decision by arranging a tour of our beautiful facility. We are looking forward to meeting you in person and to introducing you to our wonderful temple community! 

Please contact our VP of Membership, or the Temple office at 201-891-4466 to arrange a visit.  If you prefer, you can simply fill out our Contact Request Form and we will reach out to you in a timely fashion.
