We warmly invite you to become a member of Chochmat HaLev. When you make Chochmat HaLev your spiritual home, you become immersed in a Jewish renewal community grounded in the wisdom and tradition of our ancestors. Chochmat HaLev, known for its transformative Shabbat and High Holy Day services, is dedicated to providing its members with a meaningful Jewish experience every day and especially during their most important lifecycle events.

Benefits
  • Celebrate births, b’nei mitzvot, weddings, and other major events with the blessing of our clergy and in participation with the community.
  • Free High Holy Days admission.

Chochmat relies largely on the generosity of our members to sustain our community, our leaders, our staff, and the wonderful services we offer.
