Sliding Scale Dues

To create a kehillah kedoshah – a holy community – we each must assume the responsibility of meeting the financial requirements of our synagogue. Members pay their dues based on their household income, found in the following sliding scale plan. You will not be asked to disclose your income or provide financial documents. We simply request that each member pledge honestly.

If you are having financial difficulties this year, please do not hesitate to contact the Membership Department to discuss dues or payment plans.  No one will be denied membership because of inability to pay. All financial information is confidential. If you join after October 1, dues are prorated each quarter (except for the BJ Friend membership).

Please contact Ellen Saltzman for more information about membership.
