Note: Online access may vary according to the nature of the program or service. However, we expect that online programming and services will remain a part of your ability to engage with Mishkan Shalom regardless of your membership designation. Self-assessed donations to join us for the High Holy Days will remain in place for all concerned in all circumstances and since we do not issue tickets for our open services.

We have developed the following Membership Commitment Levels. 60-70% of our annual operating budget comes from annual membership, which is based on an average amount of $2,500 per household, allowing for lesser and greater contributions. Remember, Mishkan uniquely asks you to self-assess your dues contribution. In doing so, we hope that you will give with a nadiv lev/full heart. You do not need to explain or justify your giving level.

Chai: $18,000 and above (Membership + General Fund donation) For Life: members who can offer additional charitable gifts, to ensure we can provide the level of services and care our community relies upon

To Guard from Generation to Generation — Lishmur l'Dor v'Dor: $5,000.00 and above

To Succeed — L’hatsliakh: $3,500.00 to $4,999.00

Consistent with our values we ask that each household study and understand our Statement of Principles, agree to support our Brit HaMishkan, then make an informed decision of which Membership Commitment Level best reflects your ability to support our community through annual fully self-assessed financial commitment.
