Welcome! Thank you for considering becoming a Member of Elwood Shule. Our Shule is more than just a Shule. It is a community of people who support each other, help each other in times of difficulty and share both happy and sad times together.

Not only is it an honour and responsibility of every person in a Jewish community to be a member of a Shule, it also comes with benefits:

  • access to our wonderful Rabbinical team for pastoral care
  • access to a Shule seat
  • discounted life cycle events (a member will save on the cost of a Bar / Bat Mitzvah, or a wedding and pay no fee for a funeral or consecration)
  • discounted entry to our functions and and hall hire
  • voting rights
  • making your voice heard

Our Board of Management, Rabbinical team and office staff work throughout the year - not just to ensure the success of the High Holyday services - to be there for our members when they need them the most, as well as the regular entertainment, social and religious events throughout the year.

Membership and seat rental fees are the backbone of our Shule’s financial support. Timely payment of fees enables the Rabbinical team, Board and staff to provide the best possible service to you, our Shule Community.

In order to become a member of Elwood Shule, the Constitution requires that you complete a membership application form and pay the relevant annual fee.

Together with your completed membership application form, you will also need to provide us with copies of your or your parent’s Ketubah together with your birth certificate; or a copy of your certificate of orthodox conversion

We look forward to welcoming you to our Shule!
