With Rosh Hashanah 5779 fast approaching, the members of the BMTL Vaad would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families a K’tiva V'Chatima Tova. May the new year of 5779 be filled with bracha, hatzlacha, and shalom for the community as a whole, and for all individually.

We would also like to express our very heartfelt appreciation to the outgoing members of the Vaad, Miriam Marcus, Dina Reich and Eitan Kupietzky, for all their work and contributions to our kehilla during an especially busy year. We would also like to thank all those in our kehilla who have contributed in so many ways during the past year.

The Vaad is hard at work preparing for the Yamim Noraim, as well as planning for the coming year. In addition to the overall administration of the shul, each Va’ad member has a primary area of focus which appears next to his/her name at the end of this letter. We truly welcome ideas and involvement from all members of the Kehilla; if you have an idea you would like to see implemented, please do not hesitate to reach out to any member of the Va’ad to share it.

Membership Dues

In order to provide for all the needs of our community, annual dues comprise the biggest portion of the shul revenue that supports our yearly budget. We are sure you will be happy to hear that dues for 5779 will remain the same as last year, at NIS 1,500 per family and NIS 750 for a single. In addition, we will again 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 total building fund amount of $2,000 (roughly 7,000 ? as of today) along with your membership dues for 5779. 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.

For your convenience, Vaad members will be in the Beit Knesset to collect dues and building fund payments at the following dates and times: ? Wednesday evening, August 29th 8:30 PM – 10:00 PM ? Thursday evening, August 30th 8:30 PM – 10:00 PM ? Sunday evening, September 2nd 8:30 PM – 10:00 PM Please make every effort to take care of your payment obligations during one of these times.

To streamline the process, before going to pay at one of the times above, please enter information online at http://bmtl.org/membership and then pay quickly at shul. This year we plan to have tax receipts sent by e-mail immediately on receipt of payment, unless you need otherwise.

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 5779 is lowered from last year’s rate, and will now be NIS 500. 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.
