Becoming a member

We invite you to attend any of the various congregational activities which you will find on our website. Temple Beth Emeth has a wealth of programming for congregants at various stages in their lives, as well as enriching Sisterhood and Brotherhood events.
 
Please join us at any of our services on Friday evening or Saturday morning. Every week we have a 6 pm Tot Shabbat (ages 0-5) followed by a Tot dinner and a popsicle oneg. At 7:30 pm, our service uses the new Reform prayer book, Mishkan Tefilah, and is led by our clergy from September – June. During July and August, the 7:30 pm summer services are led by members of the congregation.
 
On Saturday morning there is a 9:30 am minyan service, preceded by Torah study with Rabbi Levy at 8:50 a.m. You are also welcome to attend our 10 am service, held in the sanctuary, on weeks when we celebrate a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. During July and August, there are no Saturday morning services.
 
We hope that your experiences at Temple Beth Emeth are very positive. Should you decide to pursue membership, just complete the application and membership commitment form linked to this page and return them to the office. We follow the principles of the Fair Share Program developed by the Union for Reform Judaism. Each member family is asked to contribute on the basis of their financial circumstances. No one is refused membership for financial reasons.Please note that all financial information is confidential.
 
We believe that you will find this to be a welcoming and vital community, able to meet the needs of all of its members, whether those needs are ritual, social, spiritual or educational. We encourage your participation as you make your decision about membership. Please feel free to contact me for more information, rglick@med.umich.edu. If you would like to speak directly with other members of our senior staff, their contact information is found at the bottom of this letter, or please call the office, 734/665-4744.  
 
We look forward to meeting you!
