Membership at Nehar Shalom

Being a member of Nehar Shalom is an opportunity to co-create our community. Whether through participating in services, family programs, or learning; giving or receiving a meal or other kinds of support; sharing your own celebrations and losses, and joining others in both joy and sorrow, your presence in our community matters. As our congregation continues to grow and change, members play an important role in making decisions about who we are and how we do things. Becoming a member affirms your commitment in building Nehar Shalom’s future. 

 

Specific benefits for members include:

  • Priority registration at services and programs when spaces are limited due to COVID-19.

  • Regular Shabbat emails from the rabbi and the option to participate in a members listserv that allows us to connect both personally and communally.

  • Special access to pastoral counseling, lifecycle support, and learning with Rabbi Leora, our rabbinic intern, and our education staff.

 

Resourcing Our Community

We ask each member household to make an annual or monthly contribution in order to help sustain our inclusive, multi-generational community. Membership dues are the primary way we fund our community activities. With around 170 adult members in the community at present, our goal is to average $1,000 per adult (not per household) in membership dues. We are proud to be a multi-class community, and have proposed the below sliding dues scale based on household income.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Everyone is welcome and valued as a member, regardless of their ability to pay. If the above suggestions are a barrier to membership, we encourage you to contribute an amount that is meaningful and affordable for you. We value our members for all of their contributions, monetary and otherwise. 

 

Nehar Shalom recently made a one-time shift to the timing of our renewal process. This year and moving forward, please renew your membership by June 30.

Please consider the amount you wish to pledge in membership contributions through June 2023.

 

Thank you for being a member of our community!

Yahrzeits

A yahrzeit is the anniversary of a death. If you want Nehar Shalom to remember the anniversary of death of anyone in your life, please share their information below.

Please include the date, including year, of the person’s death. You are welcome to provide the date on the Gregorian or Hebrew calendars; we will mark the date according to whichever calendar you provide. If you wish to observe the Yahrzeit on the Hebrew calendar but don’t know the Hebrew date on which they died, please use this tool. Rabbi Leora is always available to help with this.

Accessibility and Permissions

You have the option to choose check or online payment after you put in your contact information. Thank you!
