Why Join a Synagogue
Some people join a synagogue when their children start Religious School; others in Nursery School; some join simply so their child can have a bar mitzvah. But the real reason to join a synagogue, whenever you choose to join, is to be part of a Jewish community – to have a place to grow Jewishly; to celebrate and to find support in times of need; and to live a life by the Jewish calendar and to identify with other Jews. Above all, WJC is about being a Jewish community and living as a Jewish community. We welcome all who wish to join us.
There are many ways to become an active member of WJC – through our Early Childhood Center, Religious School, one of our many committees, adult education or by attending our religious services. Come to morning minyan on Thursday, stay for Thursday morning Torah. Bring your child to Torah for Tots, stay for Kiddush; Come to a Nursery Auxiliary parent mixer; find out how you can help at the Parent Association Purim Carnival. We encourage your participation and will help you find your place in our congregational life.
By becoming a member of WJC, you make a commitment to financially support the life of the congregation through dues. Like most synagogues, WJC has a dues structure that seeks to accommodate our members’ needs. No one is denied membership for financial reasons. Please call our Executive Director at 914-698-2960 to discuss membership dues.
If you plan to visit on a Shabbat morning, please let us know by calling our office at 914-698-2960.
