Welcome to P'nai Or!

Our members are encouraged to enjoy and help sustain our community through commemorating holidays, immersing ourselves and our children in Jewish traditions, studying and reading Torah, music, social justice and interfaith work. Benefits of membership include deeper connection with a loving community, services, holiday celebrations, support for life cycle events, weekly community announcements, visiting rabbi and other events, and working together in the critical work of social, economic and environmental justice of our times.

Everyone is always welcome at all of our services and most of our events. Members enjoy several additional benefits, including participation in ourreligious school partnership, adult education classes at no extra charge, member community meetings, voting, eligibility to run for council, and a printed nametag at High Holy Day services.
We are excited to have several membership options to offer this year:
- Standard Membership: For most members. Dues are 2% of Adjusted Gross Income (AGI)
- Associate Membership: For those who live outside the Portland Metro Area or are members of multiple congregations. Dues are 1% of Adjusted Gross Income (AGI).
- Trial Membership: For those considering joining. Three months free membership, after which dues are 2% or 1% AGI as above.
