•    2020 Terumah.  We ask each member for annual support that reflects the operating budget of the congregation, the member’s personal finances, and the member’s commitment to our community.  Recommended Terumah commitment for 2020 is $1655 for single-adult households and $3310 for two-adult households.  Learn about our Terumah model of dues.

•    Sustaining Membership.  Sustaining Members voluntarily increase their annual Terumah contributions to $3810 for a single-adult household and $4910 for a two-adult household.

•    Kol Nidre Appeal 2020.  Our only general appeal during the year begins between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and continues throughout the year.
