Fundraising

Charitable organizations such as synagogues may only raise funds that will be used to promote their mandate to provide religious and educational services to the community.  We typically receive no government funding, although, in these times of COVID-19, grants and loans to help pay for staffing and critical infrastructure are available for a limited time.

Membership Dues

As with all faith-based organizations, Congregation Shaar Hashomayim derives a significant portion of its operating revenue from the dues paid by members.  When you join the synagogue and stay current with your dues, you are helping to preserve the synagogue's role in providing the community with spiritual guidance, a place to learn, and a place to come together for fellowhip and community engagement.
