Our Board of Directors has been working very hard to develop a dues structure for 2019 that will comply with the very broad mandate of our congregation. We have several very important goals:
1. Not to exclude ANYONE with a true affinity to Judaism from being a part of us.
2. To encourage all our members to participate in our services and activities.
3. And, to never, ever, exclude ANYONE just because of an inability to contribute financially to our group – and to do that without making it onerous or embarrassing.
We are working with several “lessons learned” from the last several years. We have traditionally offered High Holiday Services free of charge and were troubled by responses that we received the year before last when we tried to recommend a minimum donation for attendance. Our future policies will reflect that feed-back.
We have also adjusted our dues policy to encourage everyone to join with us.
For 2019, individual dues standard rate is $360. A family, including two adults and all children is $720.
BUT we also have a WELCOMING RATE of $108 for adults– FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR!!
AND we recognize that financial circumstances may not change quickly. So that $108 WELCOMING RATE is available forever, if that reflects your financial circumstance.
For those of you who, Beruch HaShem, can do better, we also ask of you to add an additional FAIR SHARE contribution. The amount is totally up to you. But in order to make this dues structure work we ask that you truly reflect on what the value is to you to have continuing access to your religious community. We are here year around – not just in September. And we want very very much to continue to be around, not just for ourselves, but also for the greater community at large. Please help us realize that goal!
