The Hebrew Institute of Riverdale – The Bayit – is an open Orthodox synagogue serving the entire Jewish community. We warmly embrace all Jews, regardless of affiliation, commitment, orientation, or background. Our name, the "Bayit," means home; a place of love and welcome. The HIR is known nationally for bringing spirituality into the synagogue, for activism, for youth and teen engagement, for learning programs, and for work on behalf of the elderly, the homebound, and those developmentally and physically challenged.

If these words resonate with you, if our Bayit has touched your life, then please join our growing membership.

Membership is open to all Jews regardless of affiliation, commitment or background who wish to join us on our journey of prayer, Torah study, advocacy for the State of Israel, and work on behalf of our local community, the broader Jewish community and the oppressed.
First-year household membership is $1,000 ($500 for Single membership)*.   Please fill out the online form here or fill out and return the paper membership application form to the office.
Associate Membership is available to those who are full members of another Synagogue but wish to join us for specific programs and services.  Riverdale residents: $500 per year,  Out-of-town residents: $250 per year.  Please fill out the online form here and return the associate membership application to the office.
