Joining JRC for the First Time

If you are already a member, click here to learn about renewing your membership.

Judea Reform Congregation welcomes you into our growing and inclusive community. From diverse worship services to outstanding religious education, from meaningful social justice work to the chance to schmooze with friends, new and old, there is something for everyone at Judea Reform.

The following information will help you calculate your support and fees so that you can complete a membership application.

How Much to Contribute?

This form will help you calculate your annual pledge for membership support and fees at the standard contribution levels for each age category and membership type. 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 or our Financial Secretary to talk about a membership commitment that works for you.

Payment Schedule

You may pay your pledge according to a schedule that is convenient for you. All membership support must be paid in full by the end of our fiscal year: June 30, 2019.


CHILDREN

Please tell us about all of your children, even those who are now adults.

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.
