Synagogue Contribution:

Kol Ami and Neshamah, as a joint entity espouses the value of Kehilah Kedoshah – a  Holy Community and our members rely on each other in that the costs are shared by the community.  Recently, the community adopted a “Voluntary Community Support (VCS)” model. VCS is voluntary support of the congregation where members contribute to the best of their ability. 

The VCS model speaks to our community’s value of inclusiveness. There is no longer a need for a Dues Relief process. No questions will ever be asked and no explanations will be needed regarding the family’s level of support.

We would ask that for  2018/19 you consider a contribution of an amount equal to what you previously contributed as a member of Neshamah and/or consider whether your circumstances allow for a further contribution to help support the wide variety of programming that Kol Ami offers its members. As a continuing member of Neshamah and Kol Ami, please know that whatever you choose, your contribution will be greatly appreciated.

All contributions must be arranged by August 31, 2018.
Please note: there is an $18 URJ Membership Fee added on to all Membership categories.

Please enter the amount you wish to contribute this year for your Voluntary Community Support.
