How to Get More Involved – Join a Team!

Altshul is a fully volunteer led minyan and community, and we invite you (yes, you) to get more involved. Every Altshuler helps set up shul at least once a year, but you can also join one of the ritual, management and operations, or community building teams. To sign up for your annual shift, or learn how to get more involved, click here.

Altshulers Encouraged to Join CBE

Altshul encourages our active participants to become members of the synagogue that houses us, Congregation Beth Elohim (CBE).  For the better part of a decade, CBE has provided the Altshul community with space, maintenance staff, and all manner of support.  CBE has never charged Altshul for our use of CBE’s resources, instead inviting us to become a part of CBE’s vibrant and diverse Jewish community.  This kind of support from CBE has made Altshul’s growth and flourishing possible.

Several years ago, CBE created a special level of membership with a reduced price.  We encourage all Altshulers to become members of CBE at either the full or Amit level. Please click here for the registration form and to review the benefits available for each type of membership.  If you have any questions, please contact
