Temple B'nai Abraham, one of the oldest and largest independent synagogues in the country, is a vital, dynamic and forward-looking congregation that provides connection, compassion and community for all. We offer a rich array of programs and services, but most of all we offer a sense of belonging to a larger family — your Temple family.

With a rich history of independence, Temple B'nai Abraham fosters respect for tradition, relevance to time and place, creativity, musicality and a commitment to providing a focal point for living and learning in a Jewish way.

Our Jewish Learning Program grades K-12 and The Early School, our pre-school, are widely acknowledged to be among the finest in New Jersey, and our  Makom, formal and informal programming for teens grades 8th-12th,  seeks to continue the synagogue education and involvement of our young people beyond the age of Bar/ Bat Mitzvah.

Membership in Temple B'nai Abraham will enrich the fabric of your Jewish life and provide a spiritual link to the Jewish community. We are committed to helping you find your place in our congregational life. Interfaith families are most welcome.

We believe that it is important that no one forego membership because of financial inability. Membership in Temple B’nai Abraham is open to all Jews, regardless of ability to pay.  A confidential conversation can always be had with the Executive Director. Each case will be handled on an individual basis with complete discretion and sensitivity.

At Temple B’nai Abraham, we serve Livingston, Millburn/Short Hills, West Orange, South Orange, Maplewood, Roseland and all adjacent communities, which are part of the New Jersey MetroWest region.

Please take a moment to learn more about what makes Temple B’nai Abraham a unique place.

  The Membership Committee at B'nai Abraham...

The Membership Committee is the group that recruits prospective members, welcomes new members, focuses on membership retention, encourages member participation, and is responsible for partnering with other TBA groups to plan and schedule temple-wide events.

Mitzvah Morning: The Membership Committee spearheaded the temple's annual Mitzvah Morning . An estimated 150 people from all age groups came together to accomplish the following: packed 300 nonperishable lunches which were donated to Bridges Outreach in Summit, packed 500 Men's Club Yom HaShoah candles for the congregation, collected 20 pints of blood from our Blood Drive, made numerous handmade placemats, vases and tissue paper to help Interfaith Hospitality Network guests feel welcome when they stay at TBA this June, collected various items for soldiers to be included in care packages, collected 50 signatures asking Godiva to follow Fair Trade practices, as well as collected and prepared 52 donated bicycles and one portable sewing machine for Pedals for Progress, a non-profit New Jersey-based charity that collects, processes and donates used bicycles to the work­ing poor in third-world countries. 

Summer Barbeque: Every year  the Membership Committee hosts the temple's annual Summer Barbeque.  This night of live music, cocktails and delicious food is attended by over 300 people, representing a true cross section of the temple's membership.  The 12th Annual TBA BBQ was a great event!

Membership also plans a few different congregational events throughout the year ranging from social events such as the New Member Wine and Cheese Reception in the fall and family events including a Lego Windmill Buiding project to community service driven events such as a book exchange.

 

 

Recognition Reception for Members of Temple B'nai Abraham 25 years or more...

On Friday, May 9, Temple B’nai Abraham held an anniversary wine and cheese reception honoring those who have been members of TBA for 25 years or longer. The recognition event was led by TBA member Alan Moscowitz, event chair with reception committee members Evi Meinhardt and Marilyn Rosenbaum. This event was under the auspices of the TBA Membership Committee chaired by Marjorie Zucker and Ken Starr. Approximately 150 attendees were treated to a brief talk regarding TBA’s history by Warren Grover, a TBA member who serves on the boards of the New Jersey Historical Society, the Jewish Historical Society of MetroWest, and the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Shabbat services followed the reception.  

If you are interested in joining the Membership Committee or for information about membership activities,  please contact Marjie Zucker or Ken Starr,
