The benefits to membership grow with time and involvement and include being part of all Beit Ahavah services and events; pastoral care and life cycle events co-created with you and led by our rabbi, Rabbi Riqi Kosovske; participation in High Holyday services; receipt of Reform Judaism magazine; access to our Community School and enriching family education programs; and opportunities for on-going adult education and engagement. Your membership in Beit Ahavah provides fundamental support to enable our community to fill a vital need in the Upper Valley and enable us to grow into our second decade. Welcome!

Regarding dues, Beit Ahavah does not want financial considerations to be an obstacle for membership in its community. We are committed to welcoming all participants, regardless of ability to pay Рno one will ever be turned away due to lack of funds. However, please remember that Beit Ahavah relies on its members for financial survival. The financial support payments of our members, even at their current levels, do not cover the full operating costs of the community. We therefore ask that you consider making the greatest payment you can, and we encourage members who feel they can afford to do so to make Sponsor Support Contributions above the basic levels.  Dues payments and contributions to Beit Ahavah are fully tax-deductible.

Please contact the office at 413-587-3770 or info@beitahavah.org with any questions or concerns.
