We offer a wide range of opportunities to engage spiritually, educationally, and socially in Jewish life. We are dedicated to innovating and reimagining how Judaism can be meaningful, led first and foremost by the passions and interests of our congregants.

Congregation Gates of Prayer is a warm, welcoming community. The pledge amounts below are based on our annual operating budget. Your contribution ensures that our community is not only maintained but continues to grow and develop along with you and your family. Membership is one of many ways to invest and contribute to this kehillah, this sacred community.

Base Membership – We encourage a contribution of 2% of gross annual income including salary, interest, dividends, royalties etc. For those with gross annual income below $37,500, we suggest a $750 commitment. Annual commitments do not include JFLEx (religious school), B’nai Mitzvah, Sisterhood, Brotherhood, or Gates Preschool fees.

Multi-Synagogue Membership - This option is ideal for families or individuals who maintain primary membership at another synagogue. These persons may be permanent or temporary residents of the Greater New Orleans region.

Every household is an important and equal part of Congregation Gates of Prayer. We strive to meet the needs of everyone wishing to be part of our congregational family and no one is turned away due to financial considerations. If you are unable to commit to the amount for Base Membership, we encourage you to contact our Executive Director at Conversations will remain confidential.

At Congregation Gates of Prayer, we value transparency and accessibility. Our Board of Trustees, under the guidance of the Membership Vice President, oversees the new member approval process.
