How much does it cost to become a member?
In 2012 our congregation transitioned from a traditional dues model to our Terumah system: free will annual pledging. Our members choose their own annual giving amount. Please read more about this on the Terumah link on the home page.
How do I learn more about membership – or join?
You can always contact our membership committee at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions about our community. If you are ready to discuss becoming a member, contact Rabbi Debra Hachen by phone or email her at email@example.com to set up an in-person meeting. After that, you can fill in our online membership application and Terumah pledge form.
