They say that “membership has its privileges.”
At BTYA, we see it more as membership has its “benefits.” Our kehillah offers one-of-a-kind programming, infrastructure, a great chevra, and a guiding mission. These are particularly helpful for new Olim who will find a comfortable environment and warm, embracing kehilla that literally speaks their language and understands just what they are going through (and thereby their many needs), as we were all there ourselves. While we have a lot to offer to any member of the greater Ramat Beit Shemesh community, as an actual member of our shul you get all of those and more!
