Congregational Commitment

Our Congregation is committed to stand together to secure our shared future, both of our synagogue and our people. We are dedicated to the importance of Judaism, providing  children with a Jewish education, celebrating meaningful moments in your life, mourning the passing of a loved one, or simply embracing the spirituality and traditions that are at the heart of Judaism.

For our congregation to thrive, a commitment of financial support is needed from all who wish to be a part of it. To more accurately reflect this shared responsibility, we use the term Congregational Commitment to describe our annual membership payment. 100% of your Congregational Commitment is tax-deductible, as a charitable contribution to a non-profit organization.

  • No Building Fund: There is no separate building fund or facilities maintenance fee.
  • Security: Safety and security is a priority on both campuses and is funded through a $300 annual fee.
  • Annual Report: An Annual Report for our congregation is published each year.  It conveys the  major goals and accomplishments of the past year, and provides financial transparency to our members.
  • Temple Bylaws: The bylaws are the governing documents of Temple Beth El, wherein governance guidelines and temple policies are contained.
