Your membership with Judea Reform Congregation matters!

While our building may be closed to ensure everyone’s safety during this pandemic, our congregation is very much open and thriving. We have reinvented ourselves these past months — and will continue to do so into the near future — to recreate our beloved community.

MEMBERSHIP SUPPORT


How Much to Contribute?

We rely on every member to contribute as much as you are able. For those who are able to contribute an amount greater than the standard contribution level, your additional support allows Judea Reform to be fully inclusive of all Jews, regardless of financial circumstances.

Standard membership support should never be a burden on any member’s ability to participate in our community. Members who would like to request an adjustment should contact our Executive Director, Emily Young, at eyoung@judeareform.org, or our Business Manager, Liz Gibbons at egibbons@judeareform.org, to discuss an appropriate membership commitment.

Payment Schedule

You may pay  according to a schedule that is convenient for you. All membership pledges must be paid in full by the end of our fiscal year: June 30, 2022.

MEMBERSHIP COMMITMENT

Judea Reform Congregation asks you to give from your heart. It is only with your generosity and help that the congregation can maintain and improve our excellent educational programs, beautiful facilities, and inspiring spiritual leadership. Thank you for supporting your congregation!

Alternatively, you may contact our Executive Director, Emily Young, at eyoung@judeareform.org or our Business Manager, Liz Gibbons, at egibbons@judeareform.org to talk about a membership commitment that works for you.

SACRED SPACES FEE

In May 2021, the congregation approved the new $360 Sacred Spaces Fee for all members after their first year. This fee will ensure our ability to maintain and enhance our buildings and grounds and replaces the Capital Maintenance Fee. The $360/year will be applied to all existing accounts (including Circle of Honor pledges) each year, after the first year of membership.


The Association of Reform Zionists of America (ARZA), a partner organization of the Union for Reform Judaism, supports the Reform movement in Israel, through advocacy, organizing, education, and travel experiences. If you want to support ARZA, Judea Reform makes it easy to join them when you join us. Membership in ARZA is optional. Membership in ARZA costs $50.



COMMITMENT TO INCLUSION AT JRC

Judea Reform strives to be an inclusive, diverse, and welcoming community to all. We are committed to supporting special needs families and individuals, older adults, interfaith families, people of color, LGBTQ families and individuals, and others who belong to traditionally underrepresented communities. Our goal is to make it easier for congregants to more fully participate in the religious, social, and educational life of our synagogue.
