Membership Dues

In order to provide for all the needs of our community, we need to maximize the amount of financial and human resources available through annual dues, building fund payments and donations. As was reported at the recent general meeting, our revenue is currently only just meeting our expenses. Because we wish to increase the number and scope of activities that we run, we have decided to raise membership dues slightly, to NIS 1,500 per family and NIS 750 for a single. In addition, we have decided to offer a special new-member discount of 10%: dues for first-time members this year will be NIS 1,350 .

As always, we ask that everyone who has not completed payment of their building fund pledge to continue moving in that direction. If you are not yet a building fund member we strongly encourage you to sign up now and begin making donations towards the building fund pledge of $2,000 (roughly 7,000 ? as of today) along with your membership dues for 5778. Building Fund payments are essential for payment of our capital expenses (building improvements, as opposed to operating expenses). This is a one-time obligation of every family in our kehilla, and payments may of course be made in “tashlumim,” spread out over several years. Payment of the building fund entitles your family to priority seats, discounts on use of the Ulam Selesny Simcha Hall and other privileges , including voting in the upcoming selection of our new Rav .

The Sheinfeld community is served by a number of batei knesset and there are many people who are full members of one beit knesset and yet attend tefillot or other activities at other batei knesset. To enable those who are full members of other batei knesset but regularly avail themselves of our services and to support our shul, we offer associate membership. Associate members are entitled to discounts on use of the Ulam Selesny Simcha Hall and other privileges. Associate membership dues for 5778 will remain at last year’s rate of NIS 650. Please note that associate membership is intended only for those people who are full members in another beit knesset.

If you would like to be a member of BMTL but are unable to meet the dues, please contact Dov Krulwich at 0544-644-833 to arrange accommodations, which will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
