The advantages of full membership include:

  • Access to bursaries of up to £200 per person for all Liberal Judaism Youth events, including Israel Tour and Kadimah summer camp courtesy of the family of Lord Brittan, former Home Secretary and MP for Richmond, North Yorkshire
  • Free reciprocal tickets for high holy days and other events at all progressive synagogues anywhere in the country
  • Membership of Liberal Judaism nationally with the huge range of activities and events which the organisation offers (see for further details)
  • Information and rabbinic support for lifecycle events, brit milah, bar mitzvah, marriage and so on.

Friends are those that wish to support the York Liberal Jewish Community – often a partner of a member – but are not Jewish themselves

Associate members are those that pay full membership to another synagogue.
