Want to make it official? Tifereth Israel is always happy to welcome you to our programs or services, even if you are not a member – but we think that becoming a member is a way to enrich yourself, and to give back to the community.
Why become a member of Tifereth Israel? Because it is a way to express your support of robust, egalitarian, progressive Judaism in Columbus. Because it is a way to connect to a large and vibrant – more than 950 families call this synagogue home – community of people who share your values, from all over the city. Because it is a way to belong, in a society where so many of us are searching for community and meaning and belonging.
Of course, if that’s not enough, there’s our award-winning religious school and youth programming. There is the access to our wonderful clergy. There is the support that comes from having people look out for you. There is the opportunity for real leadership on our board or many of our teams.
We know that joining a synagogue is, in some ways, counter-cultural. Why should you support us with your time, with your heart, with your pocketbook? The answer is – and this is a profoundly Jewish answer – in life, you have to give in order to get. You have to be willing to say: I want to be a part of something big. I want to be a part of something vibrantly Jewish. I want to be a part of something that just might change my life, or even the world.
