Tzedek Chicago is a membership-based congregation and we value the investment our members make in our community.
We have adopted a model of “a sustaining member contribution” – an amount that the Tzedek board determines based on the amount that we need from each adult member to sustain our congregation.
For 2017-2018, that amount will be the same as it was in 2017 – $400 per adult.
We know that some of our members will be able to afford a larger figure – and we encourage you to give more generously to what we are building if you can do so! But we also know that some members will not be able to afford that amount – and these members should feel comfortable contributing any amount that is affordable.
We do not believe that congregations should put the onus on members to ask for dues relief. Tzedek will gladly accept whatever contribution you can make toward sustaining our congregation – with no questions asked.
We also will be setting nominal fees to help offset the cost of large events this coming year, including High Holidays, Passover and our Hanukkah party.
We will be sending out information about membership for 2017-2018 soon – keep an eye on your email in box! If you have questions about joining, please drop us a note here.
