Benefits of Full Membership in Temple Har Zion

The goal of the Temple Har Zion is to encourage connections with each other, our clergy, and with Judaism. Our services are available in person (when possible) and remotely, by Zoom and other means. 

Special Note for Interfaith Families: Non-Jewish spouses and/or non-Jewish parents of member children are welcomed as members of our synagogue (with a few religious and leadership role exceptions). Har Zion adopted this change to our bylaws in 2015; this Tablet magazine article highlights Har Zion's leadership in the Conservative movement on this.
