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.

We also recognize that membership support should never be a burden on any member’s budget or a source of stress, and we encourage members who cannot afford the standard contribution level to write in an amount that represents the financial commitment that you are able to make. 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.

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, 2021.

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 within JRC. Our goal is to make it easier for congregants to more fully participate in the religious, social, and educational life of our synagogue.

A comments box is provided in this form for you to describe your specific inclusion needs, which may relate to a child or member with special needs, the needs of interfaith households, the needs of older adults, or some other way that Judea can welcome and include all members. The information you provide in this section will be used to make JRC as inclusive as possible. Alternatively, you may choose to discuss these matters directly with clergy, staff, or with the Inclusion or Membership committee chairs.
