Membership

​We are honored when people choose to become members of B'nai Israel Congregation. We have several membership categories to fit you and your family. For convenience, we automatically renew memberships before the High Holidays at the same level as the previous year. If you do not wish us to renew your membership during the summer or to upgrade your membership category, please let us know.

Lloyd Street Society

The Lloyd Street Society was created to honor the incredible amount of Jewish heritage on Lloyd Street and the surrounding neighborhood. The Jewish Museum of Maryland, Lloyd Street Synagogue, B'nai Israel Congregation, Attman's Deli, Corned Beef Row, and so on are wonderful testaments to the history of Jews in Baltimore. The $3,600 support 100% of our operating costs in a fair share per member unit model and helps to offset the cost of membership for someone who cannot otherwise afford to join our Historic synagogue.  This membership level also includes High Holiday seats for all members of the family.

Lloyd Street Society Dues:   $3600/year

1873 Society

B’nai Israel’s 1873 Society is a new level of membership established to recognize our 140+ years of continual operation (named for the year we were incorporated) and those who wish to honor it.  The 1873 dollars support 100% of our operating costs in a fair share per member unit model and helps to offset the cost of membership for someone who cannot otherwise afford to join our Historic synagogue.  This membership level also includes 3 High Holiday seats.

1873 Society Dues:   $1873/year

Sustaining Family/Single Membership

The Sustaining Membership level is available for those who wish to support B’nai Israel with an added contribution over Basic Membership.  The dues for this membership level sustain 70% of the synagogue’s operating budget in a fair share per member unit model.  The rest we seek from fundraising efforts and generous contributions throughout the year.
