Our members at TBI span the spectrum from lifelong N.H. residents, to retirees, to young families seeking to raise and educate their children in the relatively slower paced lifestyle of the Lakes Region. Some congregands travel 40 to 50 miles to reach our Laconia location, as we are the only Jewish house of worship in the region.
We are affiliated with the reform Jewish movement and strive to integrate the eclectic mix of Jewish backgrounds of those who seek to worship, educate and socialize in this community. Our practices incorporate our members’ beliefs and traditions from traditional conservatism to modern reform practice. Thus, the community is one of wide open arms and refreshing welcome to all who wish to belong.
Temple dues cover all activities and are in line with those of congregations of similar size. Grandparents are invited to enroll their grandchildren in the religious school, under the auspices of their membership, in cases when it is not appropriate or possible for parental membership. Discussion with the President of the congregation for accommodation in special cases is encouraged.
Members may purchase burial plots in the consecrated Temple cemetery at special rates. Family and friends are often honored on the prominent Tree of Life and departed family members can be memorialized on our Memorial Board. For further information, see the Cemetery page.
The Membership Committee looks forward to your interest in sharing the life span of you and your family by joining our congregation. We invite your inquiries and ask you to check our website calendar schedule and then attend any service to sample the pleasures and satisfactions offered by membership in the TBI community.
For special dues accomodation, contact the President of the Congregation or Membership Chair to discuss the matter.
