We welcome you as a new or prospective member of our congregation.  

We are always welcoming to individuals and families throughout the year so there is no one “best” time to join us.  We offer religious services, access to the Springfield Board of Jewish Education for joint religious and Hebrew school, a chance to be with other members of the Jewish community, and social events throughout  the year.  Please read through our website for more information.

At Temple Israel, we embrace new members and connect newcomers to families with similar backgrounds to ease the transition into a new city and congregation.  It’s easy to join Temple Israel. We offer individual and family memberships. We have full voting Memberships, plus non-voting Affiliate Memberships for people residing 50 miles or more outside of Springfield. Rabbi Stern and our Temple President are available and happy to meet with and/or talk to prospective members about affiliation and any other questions in confidence. Board members are also available to meet with and/or talk to prospective members.

Please complete and send your membership application form to the Temple office.  Applications go to the Board of Directors for approval.
