Can non-members attend services at a synagogue?

I know churches, for example Catholic churches, allow anyone to attend, but I also know that synagogues or temples have memberships. Does that mean that only temple members, or direct guests of those members, can attend temple services or classes?


Answer by  Binome (1975)

Synagogues generally welcome everyone, as long as they are respectful and obey the standards of the congregation (wearing a yarmulke, sitting with your own gender if it's an Orthodox synagogue). The rabbi should be glad to answer any other questions you have.

yes, of course everyone can attend. Synagogues do not limit anyone from entering, and the membership is only a way to create a group of those people that frequent the synagogue a lot.
