Rodfei Zedek Finances:  Terumah Model

In 2016, we adopted a new approach to member dues, an approach that supports the learning, spiritual experiences, and relationships that mark us as an engaged Jewish community.  We replaced the traditional dues model with a model called Terumah, named after the free will offering that our people gave to build the first sanctuary in the desert.  We did this because we wanted the financial structure of Rodfei Zedek to reflect who we have become, and to be as clear and participatory as our coming together as a sacred community.  Under the Terumah program, we welcome everyone who wants to be a member.

Terumah acknowledges that personal financial circumstances vary among members of the community, allowing some to participate at a substantially higher level than others.  Terumah asks that each member of the community commit to supporting Rodfei Zedek at the highest level possible.

Terumah is based upon the operating budget of the congregation, on your personal finances, and on your commitment to sustaining the community in which we participate in many different ways.  To maintain our current level of programs, education and observance, we recommended a Terumah commitment for 2020 of $1655 for single-adult households and $3310 for two-adult households.  We ask you to participate at a level that reflects your heart, your resources, and your commitment to our community.

As a community, we value our responsibilities to ourselves, to each other, and to a Judaism that values both change and tradition. We are glad to talk to you in person, by telephone, or by email if you have questions or would like more information about this model.  If you would like to discuss this confidentially, our office will connect you with the appropriate person.
