Our Annual Community Commitment is based on the belief that we all share responsibility for the fiscal health of our sacred Congregation Shir Shalom community. We appreciate and rely on the financial commitment of each congregant. Therefore, we ask you to make your Standard Base Community Commitment so that we can continue to fulfill our mission, serve our congregants, maintain our synagogue home, and involve ourselves in community activities

We ask that congregants determine their level of support using the following considerations:
  • The Standard Base Community Commitment amount is a starting point for all congregants.
  • Certain Allowances (i.e., reductions) are available for congregants who meet specific criteria (1-Adult household, 1-Adult Senior household age 65+, 2-Adult Senior household both age 65+) and who determine that the standard base rate is too burdensome. 
  • Special Arrangements - Congregants who are unable to fulfill the Standard Base Community Commitment (adjusted for allowances, if applicable) may apply for a confidential special arrangement.
  • Incremental Community CommitmentCongregants with financial capacity to support our sacred community in amounts above the Standard Base Commitment are asked to consider making an incremental commitment. This enables us to equitably fund our annual activities.
We ask you to renew your affiliation and continue your support of our sacred community for 2023.
