Thank you!

July 2020

Dear Fellow Congregants,

As the start of the Jewish year approaches, please take time this summer to renew your commitment to Congregation Hakafa. In these past months of unexpected change, Hakafa has continued to provide important opportunities for our members to be involved in congregational life and in the wider community. Participation in Shabbat worship, congregation meetings, study groups, our many social justice programs, and educational offerings for all ages has remained strong. For some offerings, participation has increased since our in-person gatherings have had to be curtailed. Your membership dues make it possible for all these activities to continue and for new adaptations to be imagined. Your financial contributions and presence with us allow members to provide and to receive support in these unusual times.
Please look over the 2020-21 Volunteer List 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. We rely solely on membership dues to meet the expenses of the life and work of the congregation.

  • Standard: The Congregation has approved a dues amount of $2,550 for fiscal 2020-2021. No increase from 2019-2020 has been made. 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 pledge an amount that the member is able to afford.
  • 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.

Please note:
- You may choose to pay your dues in one or more installments.
- All dues commitments must be paid in full by May 1, 2021.
- High Holiday access information will be sent one week prior to Rosh Hashanah to those who have made a dues pledge.


  • Tuition for Religious School, High School, and Hebrew School remains at $425 per student for each enrollment. As always, robust school programs will be offered.
  • 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 14, 2020:

* Please make out separate checks for dues and school fees.

THANK YOU in advance for your timely pledge commitments and payments which allow us to plan appropriately for the upcoming year. We are grateful that you are part of Hakafa and look forward to seeing you throughout the coming year. Please contact us if you have any questions.
