We would be pleased to welcome you as a member of our Community. We are a small Congregation that offers a warm and rewarding experience. Each member of our congregation supports the activities of our synagogue in accordance with his or her ability to pay; dues are based upon the individual family’s gross income.
We welcome all Jews as members of our synagogue regardless of ability to pay.
In cases of hardship, adjustments can be arranged to reduce membership costs. All communication regarding dues is strictly confidential.
