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 Jewish Education 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.

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 spearheads the temple's annual Mitzvah Morning each winter. An estimated 300 people from all age groups come together to make lunches, assemble breakfast bags, toiletry kits and baby kits, as welll as wrap socks, to be donated to Bridges Outreach in Summit and Apostles’ House in Newark. Donations are received from the entire temple family.
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 250 people, representing a true cross section of the temple's membership.
Membership also plans a few different congregational events throughout the year ranging from social events like a wine tasting to community service driven events such as a book exchange.
