Dues and Contributions
Help us continue to do what you love most about Temple Micah!
No matter how large or small the amount, we welcome your financial support for our congregation. We appreciate your generosity and promise to use your gift carefully and wisely. Giving to Temple Micah is an act of tzedekah—an act of charity, service and righteousness—and we as Jews place great importance on these attributes.
As unpleasant as it can be to combine the concepts of money and spirituality, the fact of the matter is that Temple Micah needs to pay its bills, just like any other organization. As a member, we expect you and your family to support the congregation through a financial pledge. The Union for Reform Judaism recommends that a family pledges no less than two percent of their income (adjusted gross income as reported to the IRS) to the synagogue. This is referred to as the Union for Reform Judaism’s “Fair Share” policy. For Temple Micah's Dues Policy in its entirety (as revised 11-11-12), click here.
Along with membership dues, there are other great ways to support Temple Micah financially. You can donate money for general Temple use or for Rabbi Mo’s Discretionary Fund. You can also make a donation in honor of or in memory of a loved one. Or, come up with your own purpose for your donation to Temple Micah. Be creative!
As our tradition teaches us, “Without bread there is no Torah; without Torah there is no bread." (Pirke Avot 3:21).
