What do members of SecularSynagogue.com get?

Your membership gives you access to the Facebook group where challenges, teaching, and discussion take place. You’ll get a weekly email and a weekly “inspiration injection” video from Rabbi Denise (also known as a “sermon”). You’ll have access to a website full of resources to DIY Jewish practice at home from Shabbat to Passover and more — these will have traditional and modern options, including those who wish for a completely secular/non-theistic experience.


How much does membership cost?

Membership is $18 a month, or an annual fee of $180. Registration only opens a few times a year so that the community can connect and cohere. Join the mailing list to find out when you can join us!
