This page will give you the information you need to find out about synagogue membership, to join our community, or to renew your membership. There is a place for your in our community, and we thank you for your support of our congregation!

There are 2 ways to proceed:  you can fill out a membership application online (which is our preferred option), or you can submit a PDF version of the application which you can fill out and return by regular mail or by email.  Information about both of these options is below.  

Online Membership Application

 1.  If you have not yet registered to use this web site, please REGISTER. You will be approved for website access within 48 hours.

2.  If you have a login ID, please log into your account, and enter your password. Once you log into your account, all the fields in the application will be completed for you.  All you have to do is choose the appropriate membership category.  If you have any trouble logging in, please contact Mimi Lavine or David Heafitz, VP Membership.

2.  After you register or log in, please join or renew your membership by using the online 2021-2022 application.   

Please note that payments may be spread over 2 or more months, but must be completed no later than 5/31/2021. There is space for you to indicate how many months you would like to take. You may pay via credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) or PayPal. You will receive a reduced rate if you pay by check, eCheck, or cash. If you choose the eCheck option (whereby money is sent to USH automatically from your bank), please also complete the Electronic Debit Authorization Form.  You may choose to buy out of the volunteer commitment, if you so desire.

No one is ever denied membership for financial reasons. Confidential arrangements can be made by contacting VP Membership  Mimi Lavine or David Heafitz.

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.

Volunteering Commitment

Synagogue operations and programs depend on member volunteers, who are required to donate their time at two events per year*.  This approach strengthens communal bonds, helps keep requested membership commitments at a moderate level, and enables us to provide a vigorous range of programs such as:
