Membership commitment

For our congregation to flourish, 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 Membership Commitment to describe our annual membership payment. 100% of your Membership Commitment is tax-deductible, as a charitable contribution to a non-profit organization.

  • Building Fund: Congregation B’nai Israel cherishes the legacy of those who built our spiritual home. Their dedication has provided us with a sanctuary where we gather to worship, celebrate, educate, and share in the richness of Jewish life. We recognize the importance of safeguarding this heritage for future generations.

    Through the Building Fund, we uphold this responsibility by ensuring the continuous maintenance and expansion of our facilities. By participating in the Building Fund, we honor the past, sustain the present, and invest in the enduring legacy of Congregation B’nai Israel for generations to come.

  • Security: Safety and security is a priority on our campus and is funded through an annual fee.
