Congregation Ner Tamid… your Jewish Home

Ner Tamid is a Pluralistic congregation – open and welcoming to Jews of all backgrounds, interfaith and non-traditional families.  We are egalitarian, valuing but not requiring Hebrew, respecting individual choices of observance, and focusing on individual spiritual needs.


As a courtesy, Congregation Ner Tamid will send reminders to members about Yahrzeits, so that you may join the congregation for Kaddish, or ask us to remember your loved ones.  Yahrzeit forms are available upon request, or you may download from our website.  (Renewing members – if there are no changes, you do not have to send in the form.)

ChaiFiveCHAI FIVE!  We keep our expenses low so your dues are low, only five times chai ($90) – no building fund, no full time salaries – featuring programs with Rena Morano, Rabbinic Associate, and rabbinic advisor Rabbi Barbara Aiello.  Children and teens are included with a parent’s membership.
