Dear Fellow Congregants,

It is time to renew your membership with Congregation Hakafa. Hakafa has a history of vibrant participation in Shabbat and holiday worship, study groups, our many social justice programs, and amazing educational offerings for all ages. This past year is no exception and has even increased over the prior year. We’ve enjoyed spending ever more time together in person, while enhancing the Zoom experience by engaging professionals. At this time, we ask that you recommit your financial and volunteer support to Hakafa to strengthen all the activities of the life of the congregation. Your commitment allows members to be part of this welcoming community, as well as to enrich our lives through involvement with people outside of our Hakafa circle.

FINANCIAL COMMITMENT 
Congregation Hakafa does no fundraising. We rely solely on the yearly financial commitments of our members to meet our expenses.

  • Hakafa was founded with an expectation that budgeted expenses would be equal to the financial support of its members. Dividing the total budget among the number of member units establishes the level of financial commitment that would sustain Hakafa’s programs if every member unit paid the same amount. The congregation set this sustaining amount at $2,925 for 2023-2024. 
  • We encourage our members to value our circle by providing the greatest level of financial support that they can. Our bylaws state that all members should help “...in relation to their individual or family financial capabilities.” No one is denied a place in our Hakafa community because of financial concerns, nor do we require disclosure of anyone’s finances. 
  • We rely on the generosity of members with greater financial resources to give above the sustaining amount to ensure that we are able to run our congregation. Your extra help will be greatly appreciated. 

Please note:

  • You may choose to pay your financial commitment in one or more installments. 
  • All financial commitments must be paid in full by May 1, 2024. 
  • Your Membership Renewal Form must be submitted before you receive tickets or other access for our High Holiday services. This information will be sent at the appropriate time prior to Rosh Hashanah, which starts the evening of September 15, to those who have renewed their membership. 

RELIGIOUS SCHOOL, HEBREW SCHOOL, AND HIGH SCHOOL

  • Congregation membership includes FREE Religious School/Hebrew School/High School, as the education of our children is an integral part of the services we provide.
  • Note that a separate school enrollment form must be filled out in order to participate.
