Fiscal Year 2023-2024 (FY24) Membership Commitment


MEMBERSHIP COMMITMENT

Sustaining a community of sharing, education, spiritual fulfillment, and outstanding pastoral support for all life cycle events requires healthy financial support. That support is delivered through annual membership commitments and donations.  They are the critical source of revenue toward the operation of our synagogue. 
 
The actual annual cost to provide you with congregational services and programs amounts to approximately $2,550 per member household. Many members will commit to that full amount and more, which allows us to sustain membership for everyone regardless of the amount they are able to commit. All members receive the following benefits: 
 
  • Relationship with clergy for spiritual counseling and life cycle events 
  • High Holy Day admission for your household 
  • Eligibility for Kol Ami Religious School and fulfillment of B’nei Mitzvah education & beyond 
  • Opportunities for embracing new relationships and spiritual experiences 
Kol Ami is a diverse congregation whose members range from young families with children to seniors living on fixed incomes. The annual membership commitment is based on the cost of operating the synagogue factoring in the number of members to establish a fair estimate of the cost per member. All members are entitled to equal participation; however, not all members can equally contribute financially.
 
Our Pillars of Kol Ami was established to provide economic security to Kol Ami. Funds raised through the Pillars Program are used to make up the shortfall in membership commitments resulting from those members who are not able to give at the recommended commitment amount.
 
We invite you to join the Pillars of Kol Ami to ensure our financial security and to sustain our vision of a “Home of Joyful Judaism for All.” As we learn in the Talmud, “All Jews are responsible for one another.” (Sh’vu’ot 39a) As a Jewish community and congregation, our lives are intertwined whereby each of us contributes time, money, or energy to make the whole greater.
 
For members who would like to give above the actual annual cost of $2,550 per year, but not at the Pillar level, we invite you to become a Benefactor. Recognition of Benefactor status will be listed on the Kol Ami website and at High Holiday services, always with the option of anonymity.
 
Pillars Levels of Support:
  • Builder $5,000+
  • Designer $9,000+
  • Architect $12,000+
  • Chai $18,000+
For those participating in the Pillars of Kol Ami Program, we offer some additional membership benefits, which are as follows:

  • Additional High Holy Day guest tickets upon request
