Questions on Racial and Ethnic Identities

As part of Kolot's journey to become an anti-racist congregation, we want to know and celebrate the racial and ethnic identities of all of our members, non-member partners, and children so we can best engage and embrace our whole community. To that end, at the suggestion of our Race Working Group we have added the following optional questions. If you have any questions or comments, please contact info@kolotchayeinu.org. We invite your feedback!


Fair Share 5784 Membership Dues (September 1, 2023 - August 31. 2024)
 

5784 FAIR SHARE DUES - MEMBERSHIP PLEDGES & PAYMENTS

Kolot membership dues may be paid in any installment or arrangement that meets your needs. To assist with our budget planning and financial management, a portion of your dues must be paid by December 31, and dues must be paid in full by June 30, 2024.

Kolot’s fiscal year follows the Jewish calendar, so it runs from September 1 to August 31. Many members ask what it costs to run Kolot per member per year. For the year 5784, if every current member pledged $2,245, Kolot would cover our budgeted expenses of $1,438,678. Membership dues are not refundable and, as with most other contributions to Kolot, they are tax deductible!

High Holy Days Pledge

Kolot Chayeinu welcomes everyone to attend our High Holy Days services without charge. Our members feel a spiritual, personal, and communal responsibility for each other.

We share our High Holy Days services with everyone… and they cost a lot to put together. A large percentage of our annual budget is based on your donations made at this time of year. Please consider how much you can afford and give.

Give for what it costs us to produce the High Holy Days—to pay a fair wage to our Clergy, our musicians, our educators, and our facilities and administrative staff; to pay the rent for the space; and the insurance. These costs are not fixed—in fact, they’re growing. We know you know Kolot Chayeinu is a special place, worth every penny you can afford.


We recommend $180 minimum contribution per person attending High Holy Days services.


Enter total pledge for all persons attending. We recommend $180 contribution per person.
