Welcome to our community!

We are a warm and welcoming Conservative congregation serving 300 plus families in the greater Philadelphia area of Montgomery County. Experience our special warmth through our Shabbat services, Torah Study, holiday celebrations, lifecycle events, Jewish education, Early Childhood, Religious School, Youth Groups & Adult Learning.

We invite you to join us at any number of our programs - daily minyan services, classes, Shabbat and holiday celebrations. Once you get to know us, we are confident that you will want to make TBI the Jewish home for your family. 

Effective July 1, 2020, we removed the traditional dues model and changed to a flexible, updated approach: Heshbon Lev. 

What is Heshbon Lev ? 

To make membership in our synagogue affordable and welcoming for all who wish to belong, we removed the traditional dues model and changed to a flexible, updated approach we call Heshbon Lev (Giving from the Heart). This new structure places its confidence directly in the hands and hearts of our members, and changes supporting our synagogue from an obligation to a mitzvah, allowing members to give from the heart.

We look forward to welcoming you in whatever way you choose to participate with our Congregation. Whether you and your family attend regular minyanim, Shabbat services, High Holiday services, spiritual events, social gatherings, early childhood education or our religious school, there is always something here for you.  

So How Much Should You Give?

Since membership dues are the primary source of income for a synagogue, it’s important to consider how that money is allocated. A synagogue’s primary expenses typically include maintaining the building, paying salaries and offering the programs, services, and materials that synagogues provide to their members.

Each year, after careful consideration, we determine the amount needed to “sustain” our congregation for each participating family. Therefore, that is the figure we provide as a guideline.

Our sustaining amount for the 2023-2024 year is approximately $3,623 for each participating family.

Donations above the “sustaining” amount by those who are able to give more are, of course, greatly appreciated! We also understand there are valid reasons to give less.  However, for this approach to work, every member must honestly assess their ability to give, keeping the “sustaining” amount in mind. Everyone is welcome into the TBI Family regardless of contribution level!
 
Building & Security Contribution

In addition to your Heshbon Lev contribution, we have a set minimum fee that goes directly toward the safety and security of our building.  It is an annual fee of $360 that pays the expense of keeping our building open, secure, and safe for our community.
