Membership

 


We are a diverse and active community!  From families with school-age children to empty nesters, retirees to interfaith families raising Jewish children,  young singles to couples just starting out, and backgrounds ranging from Orthodox to non-Jewish, together we have built a vibrant congregation.  We want our congregation to be a spiritual home to anyone seeking to make it so.

Membership itself is heroic in a period of time when the majority of Jews do not even belong to a synagogue. Each individual's decision to be a part of Sha'are Shalom creates our community and contributes to the foundation of our Congregation.

Upon this foundation, generous voluntary contributions enhance the quality of Jewish life at Sha'are Shalom. Numerous people give so much of themselves, not merely to ensure we exist, but to ensure that we thrive. This energy is contagious and inspiring.

Our religious, social and educational programming meets the needs of all our member families thanks to the input and support of each of us. We invite you, and encourage you, to join us in building a vibrant Jewish community.

Benefits and privileges include:
- Access to educational and social programs
- Use of Sha'are Shalom's facility for personal events
- Enrollment of children in our award-winning religious school
- Life-cycle events including b'nai mitzvah, brit milah, weddings, baby naming
- High Holy Day service tickets
-Discounted tuition at the Rosie Uran Jewish Education Center (RUJEC)

 

Each member household also makes a financial commitment to our building assessment fund. This commitment is not to exceed $4000 over a period of ten years, payable at a minimum of $400 each year. This assessment can be rolled into your selected dues payment schedule whether monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually. (No building fund obligation for 65 and over or affiliate members.)

We do not turn anyone away because of finacial need. To request financial assistance please contact our treasurer at treasurer@shaare-shalom.org. Your request and any financial arrangements will remain confidential.
