We thank you for your interest in becoming a member of Suburban Orthodox Congregation Toras Chaim. We strive to provide a meaningful membership experience with a Mikdash Mi'at where everyone can forge a special and unique bond with הקדוש ברוך הוא. Everyone is welcome to participate in Shul programs and events, attend shiurim and Shabbos services. Full members receive first access to Yomim Noraim seating, discounted registration for programs and rental fees for our social hall and simcha space, entry to special events and access to the Rabbi's call hours.

We understand that Shul membership often requires a serious financial commitment. We count on our members to maintain the holy space and meaningful learning, chessed and social programs we offer throughout the year. Cost of membership should never be a barrier to participation. Please contact the Shul office if you need to make special arrangements:

Sponsoring Members take the achrayus of fully supporting the operating costs of the Shul and ensuring every individual, regardless of their financial capacity, is able to feel welcome in our kehilla. The estimated cost of a member unit in our Shul is $1800 per year per family unit.

Due to heightened security concerns, all members will be asked to pay a security fee to cover expanded security at all our events. All members will be charged $75.
