Fair Share Membership Pledge 2024-2025

Dear Friends,

As we begin our new fiscal year, we reflect on the strength of our community over the past 12 months. It has been an eventful year for Temple Micah. The repercussions of Hamas’ assault on Israel and the war in Gaza have spared no Jewish community, including our own. In addition, our congregation has entered a period of transition, as Rabbi Zemel will retire next June after 40+ years of visionary leadership, passion, wisdom, and care.

Through it all, we have shown up for each other in ways big and small. Our community dinners on Shabbat and Passover brought together members from every facet of life. We engaged with many of you in our Discovery Circles. We welcomed Rabbi Slakman, who has elevated our music with innovation, creativity, and passion. A delivery of a freshly-baked challah just in time for Shabbat, a kind word, a hug we didn’t realize we needed: these are the ways that we show up for each other when times are hard. Together, we navigate a world in flux, even crisis.

Your membership pledge makes all of this possible. This coming year, with your support, we will invest in our future. We will reach for higher inspiration in our music and enrich our education of the next generation through Machon Micah. We will spend the year together as a community, celebrating and honoring Rabbi Zemel through learning, remembering, dreaming, and – yes – having fun.

At this time of the year, we ask you to recommit to Temple Micah through a financial pledge. We hope you will consider an increase from last year, as Temple Micah is not immune from rising costs in nearly all our expense categories.

Make My Pledge

We are filled with hope for 2024-2025. We cannot wait to continue this journey with you.

Rabbi Josh Beraha                                                       Rabbi Stephanie Crawley

Rabbi Healy Slakman                                                  Beth Werlin, Executive Director

How to Make Your Fair Share Pledge

for membership year 2024-2025

We meet our financial needs and share in temple life equitably through a Fair Share Pledge program. Each member household assesses its financial commitment at the beginning of the synagogue’s fiscal year, July 1.

We ask that members pledge at least 2% of their gross household income. Your honest self-assessment ensures that our community continues to be a vibrant, innovative, welcoming Jewish home. If you are able, please consider an increase. In addition to your pledge, we ask each member household to contribute $200 annually to the Building Fund in support of long-term building maintenance and improvements. This year, we have increased the building fund contribution to help cover our growing security expenses. No one is ever excluded because of financial constraints.

Members who pledge by August 5 will receive first access to register for High Holy Days 5785.
