Membership at Congregation Beth El is about inclusion and participation. Our Shared Commitment allows each member to contribute a Membership donation that is personally meaningful and appropriate.

We know that these are unprecedented times with a great deal of personal and economic uncertainty that may impact our members' abilities to determine their ability to give or to fulfill previous commitments. Our commitment to our members is to meet each individual and household where they are, practically as well as spiritually, to offer flexibility to meet changing needs and life situations.

We know there will be those who will encounter additional financial challenges and those who will be in a place to offer additional financial support. As you make your membership commitment, know that without question you may modify your donation during the course of the year if your circumstances change. Together we will strive toward wholeness, as individuals and as a community.

Our Shared Commitment
At Congregation Beth El, we believe synagogue membership is about inclusion and participation. Our Shared Commitment allows each member to contribute a Membership Commitment that is a meaningful and appropriate donation for them.

The Mitzvah of Membership
Your Membership Commitment, as part of Our Shared Commitment model, helps cultivate purposeful Jewish engagement for all synagogue members and provides a home for every soul who wishes to join our synagogue family. While we recognize that our members have different means and that each donation is personal, we ask that all members consider making a Membership Commitment at the Sustaining Amount of $3,250. The Sustaining Amount represents the total contributions per household necessary to cover the annual operating expenses as projected for this year at Congregation Beth El.


The Mitzvah of Honor Roll
Our Honor Roll members play a critical role in helping Congregation Beth El be a spiritual home for all who desire to engage with us. Our Honor Roll members’ elevated giving enables Congregation Beth El to offer relevant and innovative programming as we work to ensure a strong Jewish future. Honor Roll members choose to make a donation of $613, or more, in addition to their Membership Commitment at the Sustaining Amount of $3,250. As well, all donations to Congregation Beth El made during the year for various reasons are credited towards the Honor Roll total, including donations to our annual Kol Nidre fundraising campaign. We recognize our Honor Roll members during the High Holy Days with on-site parking and reserved Honor Roll seating for services in the Jacobs Family Community Hall, as well as with invitations to special events throughout the year.

Thank You
We appreciate all of our members whose meaningful donations each year ensure Congregation Beth El remains a home for every soul by offering a variety of Jewish experiences to nourish the mind, heart, and spirit, while being a caring Jewish community.

We look forward to meeting you personally and learning how we can help you feel comfortable at Congregation Beth El. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 858-452-1734.

Welcome to our Congregation Beth El synagogue family!
