We invite you to take a step — toward feeling part of a warm and welcoming community; toward deepening your relationship with Judaism; toward enriching your life with learning, music, prayer, and social action. We invite you to join Kol Ami as a member.
Kol Ami is a participatory congregation. Giving our talents, passion and time to Kol Ami every year is not only a responsibility shared by all members but is also a crucial part of what defines our community. We ask that each adult member, as able, participate in the hosting of at least two Shabbat services and helping with two holiday or congregation events each year. Additional details are at Kol Ami’s Member Participation policy
Annual dues are only $700 for single membership, or $1250 for family membership. Those willing and able are invited to join at the Sustainer Levels for single membership ($1200) or family membership ($2500). These contributions more accurately reflect the costs of running our congregation and assist in providing a stable financial footing.
The membership year is July 1 thru June 30. New members joining after January 1 will be charged half the regular amount and payments for High Holiday services may be applied to the current year’s dues. Membership includes the cost for Kol Ami’s High Holiday services. Dues are tax-deductible.
If you are unable to make full payment or want to arrange a payment plan, please have a confidential conversation with Kol Ami’s Treasurer. Financial hardship should never be a barrier to full participation and membership at Kol Ami. Please avail yourself of this option as needed.
Tuition for the Jewish Children’s Education Program (JCEP) is $300 for the first child and $175 for additional children. Tuition is not tax-deductible.
