Why would you  make a commitment to United Synagogue of Hoboken?


We at USH are a vibrant mix of young singles, older singles, couples, families, empty nesters and seniors.  Some of us recently arrived in Hudson County. Others have been here for years. Together, we share in our commitment to celebrating Jewish life.

We’re a place to grow, to form connections with people, and to move through life, with all its ups and downs, among an extended family. We operate as a member cooperative, sharing our creative ideas and donating our time and energy.

The most important membership benefit is being part of a place where our presence makes a difference and where, as each of us discovers or rediscovers Judaism, synagogue life becomes richer and more vital.

Members receive free admission to High Holiday services, discounts at various programs, preschool admission preference, learning center admission eligibility, our monthly newsletter: The Shofar, cemetery rights, and a voice in synagogue issues.

Membership is open to Jewish adults and their partners, whether or not they are Jewish. Everyone is encouraged to participate in community life. Partners who are not Jewish, and who choose not to join, are warmly invited to participate in all synagogue events and services, and to receive the member discount at all fee-based events.
