Membership at Congregation Hakafa

We are happy you are considering membership at Hakafa and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you into our encirclement.

Congregation Hakafa does no fundraising, so we rely solely on the yearly financial commitments of our members to pay for the programs of our congregation.

Each year, the Congregation approves a budget based on a standard sustaining amount. Our bylaws state that all financially able members are asked to support Hakafa with the sustaining amount; this year, that amount is $2,675. And, our Religious School, High School, and Hebrew School programs are now free of charge to members.

No one is denied a place in our community due to financial concerns, but our bylaws state that all should give “in relation to their individual financial capabilities.” We ask that all members consider what is appropriate for them. We count on the generosity of members with greater financial resources to give above $2,675 to ensure that we collect enough to meet our congregation’s budget. Whatever you give to Hakafa, we are grateful for your interest in belonging to our circle.
