Dues Range

At JRC we provide a dues range rather than a fixed amount for each category of household. If you are able, we encourage you to select a dues level above the minimum for your household. Your generosity helps JRC continue a longstanding practice of welcoming all our members with due regard for ability to pay.

Membership Commitment Form

All of Our Early Childhood Families are Members of Our Congregation

Did you know that at JRC all Early Childhood Center families are members of JRC? We are proud to include Early Childhood families in our intergenerational community, and we hope that your family will forge relationships to take you through the next stages in all of your lives. 

Financial pledges are an individual choice, and your contributions support not just the Early Childhood Center, but also important progressive programming and social justice initiatives. By supporting the congregation, we hope you will feel a sense of belonging in a vibrant, active community.

The Green Synagogue and the Pillars of Chai

green_synagogue_0.jpg

In 2008, we built the first platinum LEED-certified green synagogue in North America. The construction required 18 pillars - the number in Hebrew that also means "chai" or "life." 

Now, more than ten years later, JRC has launched the Pillars of Chai Campaign to raise $4.4m to wholly own our beloved building.
