Covenanting Ceremonies - A new way to approach belonging to a synagogue.
We believe membership must mean more than signing on a dotted line and handing over a check. There is a basic human need to belong to something greater than oneself and that need is met in community. After you join VBS, we invite you to share with us the blessings of community and belonging.
When you meet us on a Sunday morning, you will be introduced to one of the rabbis, members of the synagogue staff and lay leadership. After some brief introductions and some sharing of what Valley Beth Shalom means to us and can mean to you, we formally welcome you to the community through a special tour and ceremony.
