Our congregation is a diverse group. We are composed of fifth-generation Maine families as well as newer members from Europe, Australia and all areas of the United States. Several of us have lived for a time in Israel. Some have roots in Maine. Among us are practicing Orthodox Jews, traditional Conservatives, liberal Conservatives, and intermarried families with children. Members of the community who are not Jewish are welcome to our events and services.
Adas Yoshuron is the only synagogue north of Bath, south of Bangor and east of Augusta. Our membership resides in a geographical area from Newcastle to Belfast, and Burketville to the islands of Penobscot Bay. Because we are the only synagogue available to service a diverse Jewish population, the philosophy of Adas Yoshuron is one of inclusion. Women have full rights and privileges, politically and ritually.
Dues are currently $650* for a family membership and $500* for an individual membership. Because revenues from dues are not sufficient to support our programs, we depend upon generous contributions from members and nonmembers.
