YAD New Member Form 2019/20

Holy Blossom Temple Young Adult Division (YAD)

New Member Sign-Up 2019/20

Welcome to Holy Blossom Temple. We are so happy that you have decided to make HBT part of your Jewish journey. YAD is our new engagement portal for 19-30 year olds.  It’s about building relationships with our community of students and young professionals.
We have created this program for anyone between the ages of 19 and 30 to become members of HBT at an affordable rate. Generous donors through the Holy Blossom Congregational Appeal have enabled us to offer membership at Holy Blossom Temple from no cost to low cost for those under 30. Through YAD, you will have access to everything Temple has to offer, as well as a whole roster of programming dedicated to students and young professionals.
If you are over 30 years old, this is not the correct membership form for you. Please contact Abigail Carpenter-Winch, Director of Membership and Community Engagement at 416-789-3291 ext. 232 or by email.
If you are under 19 and your parents are members of Holy Blossom Temple, you are automatically a member. You can access our member prices for teen events (check out HBTeens on Facebook and/or email Lisa Baumal). If your parents are not members and you are looking to join our community, please contact Abigail at 416-789-3291 ext. 232 or by email.
If you have any questions about this membership experience, or about Holy Blossom Temple, we would love to speak with you. Contact Abigail at 416-789-3291 ext. 232 or by email.
We also welcome your participation in leadership of our programming. Please contact Rabbi Zachary Goodman at 416-789-3291 ext. 231 or by email if you are interested in shaping the Jewish future!
