We hope that your affiliation with CBSRZ brings you joy, meaning, and lasting friendships. May our years together fulfill your passions for prayer, learning, social justice, and community. Synagogue members make annual financial commitments that support CBSRZ as an active and vibrant religious, educational, and cultural institution. Membership pledges pay for the professional and support staff, subsidize our lifelong educational journey, and provide the funds needed to cover the expenses inherent in operating a Jewish community.
Our basic pledge level is the set amount required from each member unit for our operations to be successful. We each contribute a piece of the financial pie so that the whole is complete. And we are committed to welcoming all who wish to be a part of our sacred community regardless of ability to pay. So, if you are experiencing financial hardship and must reduce your contribution, you can.
That said, our congregation depends on additional dues contributions to assist those who are unable to meet minimum requirements but would like to be a part of our congregation. Any amount you are able to pledge in excess of basic membership dues will help us continue to provide a full spectrum of religious, cultural, educational, and related programs for all members of our sacred community.
