Beth Yeshurun has been the spiritual home to Jews in Houston since 1891 and providing spiritual, educational, cultural, and social activities, programs, and services to nearly 2,000 families.

Adhering to the principles of Conservative Judaism, Beth Yeshurun welcomes Jews of the widest possible demographic categories – young and mature, men and women, single and married, with children and without children, traditional observing and less traditional observing.

Because of our “fair share” and young adult dues structures, Beth Yeshurun is open to all, regardless of financial status. Our congregants are asked and expected to contribute dues and donations based on their ability.

For more information about membership at Beth Yeshurun, contact our Membership DirectorMindi Stern by email or by phone at 713-666-1881, extension 360. We would be happy to meet with you, show you around our synagogue, and discuss opportunities to join.

Beth Yeshurun Day School is open to students from the entire Jewish community. Our Religious school and Kehillah High School enrollment are available only to members. And only members enjoy the right to vote at congregational meetings and serve on the Board of Trustees.

We have four different types of memberships available:

Follow your path in pursuit of your unique goal of spirituality, community, and knowledge. We warmly welcome the next generation and everyone seeking a spiritual home.

We are offering new congregants a first year special membership:
Under 35 years old the first year membership is free. 35 years and older the first year membership is $360.

Following your first year, we have four different types of membership available:

Regular Membership (age 35 and up) have full membership privileges, including High Holy Days admissions, enrollment in our Religious Schools, all congregation communications, and voting privileges in the management of the Congregation’s affairs. Regular membership dues are based on fair share. New Regular members are asked to make a contribution to the Building and Maintenance Fund. 

Young Adult Membership (under age 35) have all the privileges of regular membership. Recognizing, however, that most young adults are still establishing themselves financially, a special dues structure applies to young adult members. This structure is graduated with age and takes into account that many young adults cannot afford regular dues.

Dual Membership provides an opportunity for family members at other Congregations to to spend special holiday time together at Beth Yeshurun without the burden of two full-dues obligations. A special dues structure makes this possible which is the greater of (a) 1/3 of the dues at the primary synagogue or (b) $750, provided the total dues paid to both synagogues are at least equal to what the primary dues would be at Beth Yeshurun. High Holy Days admissions are available to dual members. Enrollment in Religious School is available ONLY if the primary synagogue does not have a Religious School.

Associate Membership provides an opportunity for those whose primary synagogue affiliation is elsewhere and may not be interested in or eligible for dual membership. Many people in the community enjoy coming to Beth Yeshurun to experience and participate in daily minyans, Shabbat, and educational, cultural, and social programs, and want to make a financial contribution. Associate membership is one way to do this. Associate members do not have the privilege of attending High Holy Days services or enrollment in Religious Schools, but can receive congregation communications.
