Dear Fellow Congregants,
It is time to renew your membership with Congregation Hakafa. As a congregation, we continue to grow and to provide opportunities for our members to get involved in the community – through Shabbat and holiday worship, our many social action outreach programs, and educational offerings for all ages. Your membership dues (and your participation) support all these actions of the congregation, and more.
Please look over the list of 2018-19 Volunteer Opportunities and sign up to help Hakafa as well as our local and global communities. Being engaged as a volunteer will deepen your connection to our circle.
Congregation Hakafa does no fundraising, so we rely solely on membership dues to operate.
Standard: The Congregation has approved a dues amount of $2,525 for fiscal 2018-2019.
Our bylaws state that all financially able members are expected to pay at least the standard amount.
Adjusted: Any member unable to pledge the standard amount due to financial hardship should contact our Dues Treasurer, Heather Harris (email@example.com or 847-530-5135) on a confidential basis by August 15, 2018 to discuss an alternative commitment amount. The Dues Treasurer is the only person authorized to discuss pledges lower than the standard amount.
- Enhanced: We count on the generosity of members with greater financial resources to pledge above the standard amount to ensure that we collect enough to run our congregation. Your extra help will be greatly appreciated.
You may choose to pay your dues in one or more installments.
All dues commitments must be paid in full by May 1, 2019.
Your dues pledge must be made before your High Holiday tickets are mailed out.
- Tuition for Religious School and Hebrew School remains at $425 per student for each enrollment.
Religious/Hebrew School enrollment is permitted only after full tuition payment and forms are received.
PLEASE COMPLETE AND RETURN THESE FORMS with your initial or full payment by August 15, 2018:
Please make out separate checks for Dues and Religious School fees.
THANK YOU in advance for your timely pledge commitments and payments and for being part of Hakafa. We look forward to another wonderful year together! Please contact us if you have any questions.
